Jacaranda

by Lorna French

 

‘Sometimes it feels so exposing just walking in the village.  I told Jimmy to ignore it at first, he tried to, but it’s isolating he said, eyes on you, not a word spoken. Even when you meet their eyes they don’t look away. Like they have a right to, like you’re a spectacle, an object.’

 

Olivia has recently moved into her great uncle’s farmhouse. She’s not local, but she knows her way around. Matty is a gamekeeper, but he doesn’t often tell anyone. He’s wary of newcomers.

These unlikely strangers find themselves beside a stream on the longest night of the year.

Pentabus and Theatre by the Lake present a brilliant new drama from award-winning playwright Lorna French which explores loss, love, prejudice, race and belonging.

There will be a 30 minute Q & A after the end  of the show
