In 1918, a young soldier serving in World War I awakens in a hospital after surviving the blast of an artillery shell. As Joe Bonham starts to make sense of his surroundings, he realizes he lost his arms, legs, and face in the explosion. Using only the power of his mind, Joe must figure out how to communicate with others, how to make sense of what happened to him, and how to live in his terrifying and lonely new reality. Bradley Rand Smith’s adaptation of Dalton Trumbo’s classic anti-war novel Johnny Got His Gun is a gripping one-man show about the power of the human spirit.
