We are thrilled to present Heather at Tobacco Factory Theatres, after commissioning an earlier version, Helen, for our a Play a Pie and a Pint series in 2014 with Òran Mór. This piece of explosive writing from award-winning Thomas Eccleshare explores what happens when a beloved author reveals a disturbing new truth.
A reclusive children’s writer becomes wildly successful. Her books are treasured across the country. But when a troubling narrative starts to unfold, we find ourselves asking: what matters more, the storyteller or the story? Brilliantly imaginative and theatrically original, Heather is a short, sharp play about language, prejudice and the power of stories.
Thomas Eccleshare is the Verity Bargate Award-winning writer of Pastoral and the co-artistic director of Arches Brick Award-winning company, Dancing Brick.
