STITCHES a new play by Claire Urwin

Tuesday 28th June – Saturday 2nd July, 7pm nightly (3pm matinee on Saturday 2n

‘It was simple. Some moved up to the Cloud Rafts, some moved out to the Ocean Floats and the rest of us stayed behind to watch the world burn.’

Stitches is a dark, post-apocalyptic new play, which explores culture and the human relationship with the environment following a major ecological disaster. A poetic discussion piece which is both entertaining and thought provoking, this inaugural production from new-writing theatre company hairofthedog comes from acclaimed writer Claire Urwin (Winner of the International Student Playscript Competition for How Hard It Happens and ‘one to watch’, The Sunday Times).

‘Every detail is noticed – every note, every line, every expression. Iliffe’s attention to detail is so minute that every possible crease is totally ironed out, showing a very firm hand on the tiller.’ HISKIND Magazine
