A grenade hits Joe Bonham in WW1. He wakes up in the hospital to discover his arms, legs, eyes, ears and mouth are gone. Left is but a torso – the living dead alone with his thoughts. Now he breaks through to be heard. In the performance, Joe spins the audience through his tragedy and the 1900s: the century of growth, violence and loss. And he takes no easy way out. Joe fought in the name of liberty, democracy and his native land to lose everything. Now he questions what he's been taught to dream of.
