6 writers, 6 new short plays, and the lives of 5 characters collide.
A washed-up comedian, a park warden, a former war photographer, a security guard and a Bahraini prince encounter each other as they try to escape from their pasts.
Set in and around Richmond, which was described nearly 200 years ago by Sir Walter Scott as “an unrivalled landscape”.
Written by the Orange Tree’s Writers Group, which nurtures the talents of professional playwrights, it is directed by our Trainee Directors, who are part of a scheme which has launched the careers of leading Artistic Directors, including the Lyric’s Sean Holmes, Glasgow Citzens’ Theatre’s Dominic Hill, and former Directors of Hampstead Theatre and Birmingham Rep, Anthony Clark and Rachel Kavanaugh.
