The War On Terry
by Hugh Dichmont
“My girlfriend thinks I’m obsessed with death. Well maybe I am, but only as much as the next rotting sack of bones.”
It’s Terry’s birthday, but living with your parents at his age isn’t exactly a recipe for fun. At 27, Terry is now, and forever more, older than his older brother Danny, who killed himself three years before.
Terry reminisces over their childhood, whilst fighting to come to terms with his regrets over how things could have been different. What’s more, he may have just murdered 300 ladybirds. A darkly comic monologue about boys, Christmas socks and not growing up.
Written and Directed by Hugh Dichmont
