XYThis Tuesday is the Edinburgh Preview for my short play that’ a part of Papercut Theatre’s XY. If you’re not going up to Edinburgh, and are in London, it’ll be your last chance to see it. It’s on at Theatre503 in Battersea. Here’s the FB event.

My short is called “Hopelessly devoted to you“. It features wheelchair sex and skydiving. That’s my main marketing pitch and I’m sticking to it. I really like this darkly comic little play and what the director and cast have done with it, so I hope folks get to see it.

It premiered last December at Theatre503 and will be on at the Pleasance Courtyard as part of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe from 31 July to 4 Aug as part of the rotating set of plays that will make up XY.


XY – Edinburgh Preview

Our writers were given a simple job. Write a short play without specifying gender for any of the characters. One play. No gender. Endless possibilities.

Ahead of their residency at the Pleasance Courtyard at this summer’s Edinburgh Festival Fringe, Papercut Theatre present a selection of plays from their acclaimed short play festival.
