WRITTEN BY debbie tucker green

It’s a strictly ordinary day for a strictly ordinary young woman: alarm at 7:37am, dogs and birds and up at 7:41, a fight with her brother, a half-breakfast with her mum, and then out into the world, with its gossip and distractions. Until one moment—wrong place, wrong time, a seemingly random crime—shatters everything. debbie tucker green captures the strangeness of grief and catastrophe in piercing, poetic detail. The DC debut of a major British talent and one of the 50 Best Plays of the 21st Century (The Guardian).
