A Wedding Story

'A spry if wintry comedy about a lesbian, a wedding-day bonk, and a mother who contracts Alzheimer's... It dares to find failure and frivolity (a sure sign of dramatic honesty) in the face of domestic hell. Funny, frank and churning by turns, this struck me as a lyrical new play about the unlyrical business of coping when real life knocks on the door.' Daily Express

Winner of the TMA Best New Play award and Eileen Anderson Central Television Award for Best Play.

'Bryony Lavery's big, brave, compassionate play about grief, revenge, forgiveness and bearing the unbearable.' Guardian

'A major play... thrilling, humane and timely.' The Times

'Consistently surprising and even bravely comic... The almost thriller-like promise of the play's climactic confrontation is like a time-bomb ticking in the back of your head. Independent


A young war reporter gets abducted and finds herself in the midst of a cycle of violence, in a land crippled by hate.
