Good to have one of my ‘shorts’ in Birmingham Fest 2015 at The Blue Orange Theatre in the Jewellery Quarter.

The play was one of a programme of shorts selected by local writers as part of Shorts 3 – a regular showcase for new writing.

Inspired by a short story by Ernest Hemingway (Hills Like Elephants) the play explores a conversation between two lovers flying back from a holiday romance in Greece. But can they face the taboo subject staring them in the face?

Birmingham Fest is “a 2 week performing arts festival celebrating the second city’s venues & arts scene. The main feature of the festival is the fringe theatre, where artists and companies from across the UK showcase their work in an exciting two and a half week programme of events.

The festival ran from 17 July – 2 August 2015
