The Things We Never Said

Excited to be planning a rehearsed reading of my play, The Things We Never Said, at JW3 (London Jewish Cultural Centre) on 20 October 2016:

A mother and daughter.  A lifetime.  But what becomes of that bond, when one of you knows only the present moment – Monday, 15.36? “You said you’d never forget me, but you have.”  “You said you’d love me forever, but you don’t know who I am…"

This work in progress has evolved from Exhumation, a play I wrote on the Royal Court Theatre Writers' Group 2013, which was workshopped there in 2015 with Associate Director Lucy Morrison and cast Anna Calder-Marshall, Laura Howard, Andy Whipp, and Simon Lenagan.
