This made it two out of two excellent short plays at small theatres this weekend, after the stunning Suzy Storck at The Gate the previous night.
This one, in the Bush Studio, was a two-hander with just a table, two chairs and two mikes as props. It was extraordinary how much “magic” the excellent performers manage to get out of that low-key set.
The play is about a reclusive but massively successful author of children’s fiction.
The Bush resource on this play/production is comprehensive, explaining the play, production etc. – click here.

Deservedly good reviews and another short play/production that deserves a wider audience than The Bush Studio – I do hope it gets a transfer and/or tour.
Below is the trailer:
We really liked this play/production.
We had been blown away by Nick Payne’s Constellations, so our expectations were high…
…this piece met those expectations.
It is all well explained on the Bush’s excellent on-line resource – click here.
This search term link will find you independent reviews and resources, although you shouldn’t much need them because the piece was very well received so the above Bush resource covers most of the bases.
Here is a very interesting interview/explanation from Nick Payne:
Below is a tantalising trailer which says little but looks spectacular:
A super evening of theatre. This one really deserves a revival and/or a major theatre run.
