Theatre503 and Darcy Dobson Productions present
After 15 years of marriage, Daniel and Sylvia find themselves drifting further apart with each passing day. Until one morning, they find themselves abruptly united by every parent’s worst nightmare…
The shoes have been polished, the vases are full and the phone is ringing off the hook, but there’s one thing they’re still missing… answers. Forced into a confrontation, years of resentments and things long left unsaid rise to the surface as they questions the circumstances that brought them to this point, and what happens to your relationship when the only thing holding you together, threatens to tear you apart.
A timely spotlight on parental grief, Til Death Do Us Part is the debut play of Safaa Benson- Effiom, and was a finalist in the 2020 Theatre503 International Playwriting Award and Soho Theatre’s 2019 Tony Craze award. This is presented as a co-production with Darcy Dobson Productions.
Age guidance: 14+
