Shellshock will also star one of Australia’s emerging young actors, Benson Jack Anthony (Underbelly: Razor), as fourteen year old Tom Lindsay.

Featuring shadow puppets by one of Australia’s leading puppeteers, Sue Wallace (Nella’s Wings) and brilliant lighting design by Matt Marshall (Rainbow’s End, R+J)Shellshock is an unusual love story of an Australian teenager and his tortoise friend, Herman, the oldest living survivor of the Gallipoli campaign.
