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?

A short, sharp new play about language, prejudice and the power of stories.

“Thrillingly tricksy triptych... Ferociously smart writing, slickly staged.”

Fergus Morgan (The Stage, What's On Stage)

“A small and almost perfectly formed look at identity, greed, publishing, and pens.”

Ann Treneman (Times)

“Gerlach and Melia bring warmth and conviction to their characters and Eccleshare has been bold in his storytelling.”

Veronica Lee (Daily Mail, ES, Arts Desk)

“Nifty theatrical triptych... One helluva twist... Eccleshare raises some big aesthetic conundrums with a really light touch.”

Matt Trueman (What's On Stage, Time Out)

“Compelling... Plays merry havoc with lots of ideas... A nice tang of disagreeable truth... Fluent, imaginative. ”

Aleks Sierz (Arts Desk, The Stage)

“Melia and Gerlach are brisk and agile performers, and Ceschi gives the play’s three sections strikingly different textures.”

Henry Hitchings (Evening Standard)
