Deepcut Families’ Fight For Justice Private Geoff Gray was just seventeen when he was found dead, next to the perimeter fence at Deepcut barracks on 17 September 2001. He had two bullet wounds to his head. The Army said it was suicide. Private Gray was not the first young recruit whose life had ended under suspicious circumstances at Deepcut, nor would he be the last: Private James Collinson died from a single gunshot wound while on NOVEMBER guard duty in March 2002. Propelled into the media spotlight to campaign for a public inquiry into the deaths of their sons, the Gray and the Collinson families invite you to spend an evening with them to experience the emotional rollercoaster that their lives have become. At times darkly humorous, Fiona Evans’ new play offers a unique insight into the bleak reality of what it’s like when you’re forced to become ‘the celebrity bereaved’. Events Find out more about the families’ fight for justice in a series of weekly events. TICKETS: £5; £3 concs DURATION: Approx 1 hour
