Collection 1 is no longer booking.
Zoom calls. Trump’s America. Online dating. Black Lives Matter. 2020 was the year none of us will forget.
Hear intimate stories of love, politics, tragedy, family and even football as the international becomes local in these specially commissioned new work from 12 writers in the UK and around the world.
2020 is performed in three collections across three weeks, each presenting four stories.
Love in the Time of Corona
by Hassan Abdulrazzak
Newly divorced and adjusting to living alone in lockdown, 30-something Yasmine turns to online dating but there is something oddly familiar about who she meets in this darkly humorous piece.
Never Been Away
by Shahid Iqbal Khan
30-year-old Tabish, a British Bangladeshi man, leaves behind his boyfriend and returns to Bradford at the height of the pandemic to care for his vulnerable mum and dad. This piece explores intergenerational tensions, the role of carers, the challenges involved in accessing healthcare services and the human face of the NHS.
by Amina Atiq
With Liverpool FC finally ending 19 years of hurt, this piece is told from the perspective of a football mad scouser – who happens to be a young hijabi woman – and describes events in Liverpool; from the Tory failings and mass testing initiatives to the jubilant, yet muted Premier League celebrations.
by Erinn Dhesi
Change explores a person’s relationship to place and home. When the planets and stars align and force you to return to the place you detest, how do you deal with having all of the things which made you leave thrown back in your face?
