For those who don’t feel like they’re in the right life the web is a place to be yourself.
“Happiness. Aching, constant, consuming- on there it’s. More real than real life. I’m honest on there. I’m being honest. That’s important”
Out in the real world though, things can be very different. A story of first love through the eyes of a gender-curious teen Scorch examines how the human story often gets lost amidst the headlines.
“The real life issue takes on heightened dramatic resonance, fractured and splintered by Gregg’s syncopated prose style”
Inspired by recent court cases Scorch is written by Stacey Gregg one of Northern Ireland’s most talented playwrights [ Huzzies, Shibboleth]. Scorch received its world premiere at Outburst in 2015 and found critical acclaim after winning the Irish Times Theatre Award for Best New Play and the Writers Guild of Ireland ZeBBie Award for Best Theatre Script. Prime Cut [I Am My Own Wife, Chilean Trilogy, The Conquest of Happiness] are delighted to present the first ever national UK and Ireland tour of this touching, funny and provocative play throughout 2016.
