The Winterling / This Wide Night

A production by Theatre Group

Written by Jez Butterworth & Chloe Moss

SUSU Theatre Group presents a double bill of black comedy from two of Britain's greatest contemporary playwrights

Delving into the minds of men and women who have chosen to live lives of crime, both shows deliver frenetic comedy yet don't shy away from the stark consequences these people have to face for their choices.

The Winterling
Wherever you run, it's not far enough.
In a tired-out farmhouse on Dartmoor, West is waiting. He is expecting young likely-lad Patsy and old-hand Wally, two thugs from London, and has laid on quite a spread. Patsy and Wally don’t know what to expect, stirred from the city by nothing more than West’s elliptical phone call: ‘passport, toothbrush, roll-on – no questions asked’.

This Wide Night
Crime doesn't pay.
Two women sit in a filthy London apartment. They seek to find purpose in their lives after their release from prison. Marie: a former drug addict, prone to shoplifting and coerced into prostitution. Lorraine: her old cellmate was inside for murder and, at the age of 40, forlornly dreams of rebuilding her family.
