NEW 2017: Hush

24 March 2017

Filed Under:


Three stories linked by guilt, secrets and a missing boy come together in Hush, a new play by Alison Carr about returning to a place you used to live.

The story swirls around three people, their individual stories interconnect and interchange and actually affect each other.

What you get is a sense of the community, and I think it’s interesting because it’s kind of dark and set in a place that feels moody but at the same time it’s a story about everybody, it’s a story for everybody.

You can see yourself in some of the characters; I definitely do.”

Hush was created in collaboration with Paines Plough.

The play will be showing at RWCMD from 28-31 March and at the Gate Theatre in London from 5-8 April.
