Terrain and Theatre503 present
Helen is forty when she loses her husband. Becca is fifteen when her Dad dies. Then it’s just the two of them, what do they do next?
Maureen Lennon’s play, shortlisted for the Theatre 503 International Playwriting Prize, unfolds through snapshots of their relationship over the next forty years. Joys and traumas, laughs and arguments. Exploring the thread which binds them together and the different ways they damage and save each other. A play about love, grief, and two women up a hillside with ashes stuck to their trouser leg.
Terrain is a new company dedicated to promoting Northern artists and the stories they tell. The company looks to celebrate the contemporary narrative landscape of the region and ensure brilliant plays get in front of audiences.
