The Bench
Written and directed by Joe O'Byrne
27th Jan 2009 - 29th Jan 2009

Over a year, the lives of an eclectic group of Paradise Heights residents - a boxer, his trainer, a thief, a fake medium, a homeless man, an artist, a widow, a dealer, a loan shark, an angel and a ghost - intersect around a bench in the local park. Some are holding on to the past, others are even more desperate to escape it, and the unbearable pain that has made them who they are. Before the end of the year, someone will die on it… Written by Joe O'Byrne, The Bench features Stella Grundy, Clyve Bonelle, Phoebe Marie Jones, Ian Curley, Ste Myott, and Ben Hood.

*Contains strong language. Approximate running time: Two hours 20 minutes, includes interval.

"Sharp and telling… A play, and writer, which will surely go on to great things" - Manchester Evening News
