REVIEW: Ballistic at the Kings Head Theatre


Ballistic tracks the journey of a 22 year old Man; Detached from friendship groups, shamed by those around him, bullied by his peers, distant from his family relations. Mark Conway takes us on a heart racing, emotional and at times hilarious journey through his life from the age of 11 to the present moment.

Without giving too much away, the piece has been inspired by real life events and feels even more topical right now with the recent tragedy in a United States college.

Conway really made me sympathise with his character, which made the final scenes so hard to watch. I had an overwhelming internal battle between condemnation for his actions and the yearning to look after him and save him from himself.

An extremely interesting watch and I would highly recommend this one man show.
