Tue 14 – Sat 18 May

A man and a woman
Who’ve lost a child
Who first lost a child
And then…each other

A couple torn apart by their son’s death meet at his graveyard. The cemetery is closing; the body must be moved.

Unearthing wounds once silenced, their meeting becomes an exercise in manipulation, a grapple of the past, and a fight for domination.

By arrangement with Nick Hern Books.

The Directors’ Cuts season is a programme of contemporary theatre presented by the four graduating directors from Bristol Old Vic Theatre School and featuring work by acting, design and production students. Now in its thirteenth year and at The Wardrobe Theatre for the third time, the Directors’ Cuts season is firmly established in the Bristol theatre calendar. It has a reputation for showcasing fresh, vibrant and cutting edge theatre work by some of the finest emerging talent in UK theatre. Diverse and highly charged, this is a season of provocative plays which all have an important relevance in today’s society.

“Contemporary drama with extraordinary insightfulness, vivacity and theatrical prowess.”
