Three short plays from the multi-award-winning writer of Visitors:
At First Sight:
Two young people meet and spend a New Year together in Salzburg. Holly is there on holiday with her parents; Jack plays piano in the hotel bar. Their story is told through a collage of exchange and recollection. At First Sight toured the UK and ended at the Latitude Festival, 2011. Winner of the Drama Association of Wales One Act Play Competition.
Fear Of Music:
Luke is the first in his family to go to university, and he’s determined to stop his irritating fireball of a brother from following in their father’s footsteps by joining the army. Vivid, detailed and often hilarious, Fear of Music time-bends between 1987 and 1993, piecing together the prelude and aftermath of a tragedy that sees history repeating itself.
Every You Every Me:
Every You Every Me is a play about coping, Kurt Cobain, rebellion, revolution, opening your A-level results, choosing your life and the pressure of systems on kids.
A new play exploring teenagers’ mental health issues, performed at the Salisbury Playhouse Salberg Studio.
