Little on the inside

By Alice Birch

Directed By Lucy Morrison

production information

On a patch of green that is nowhere to be found here, two women provide a little comfort for one another. Through stories old and new they occupy an imagined space, and invent a world in which they might live together. But how can they stay in a place that doesn't exist?

Alice Birch
is one of theatre's most exciting new voices and has worked with companies including Paines Plough,Royal Court and Arcola Theatre. Her first full length play Many Moons opened to acclaim at Theatre 503 in 2011.

We will be revealing more about this brand new commission as the work develops.

"This is a meticulously written play"
Maddy Costa, The Guardian, on Many Moons (Theatre 503)
