Southwark Playhouse Young Company present

(Circle Dreams Around) The Terrible, Terrible Past

by Simon Longman
17 - 18 MAR 2023

Ticket Prices:
£5

A recurring dream. There are fish, chickens, cows, who all look and sound like people and people who look kind of familiar.

They dream about the past mainly, a past that they don’t belong to but a past that wants to belong to them. And then there’s a butcher, killing people.

The dream circles around, going back to the start again and again; a dream they can’t get escape. 

Simon Longman is a playwright from the West Midlands. His plays include Patient Light for Eastern Angles; Island Town for Paines Plough; Gundog at the Royal Court; Rails at Theatre by the Lake; White Sky at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama and the Royal Court; Sparks at the Old Red Lion; and Milked for Pentabus. He is the recipient of the 49th George Devine Award for Most Promising Playwright and has previously won the Channel 4 Playwrights’ Scheme. His work has been translated and produced internationally.
