Come Back to Bed

Fitzpatrick Theatre, 2017

'I don't think time heals, really. You just get used to the pain, like when you cut yourself – if the bleeding is constant, you stop noticing it. It stops throbbing.'

As the barriers between Clara and Ben break down, physical violence and violent love destine the couple for mutual destruction. Set on one rainy afternoon, this intimate bedroom scene shows their unhealthy, habitual pattern and inability to communicate. Here, loneliness takes the form of love. With the stage and script both stripped bare: ‘Come Back to Bed’ is a performance of raw emotion and physicality, as two people are pushed to their limits

'student writing at its most raw and most captivating'
