About: Broken

A bloke and a bird, both alike in dignity,
In slummy Shepherds Bush, where we lay our scene,
Eyes lock and that age-old story doth replay,
Of star-crossed lovers and their fluttering hearts,
But love is blind when viewed through rosey-coloured specs,
And when morning breaks they findeth their love broken too,
And as horns lock the age-old story doth replay,
Of how love that burneth bright becometh charred remains.
So this – the one hour traffic of our stage;
The which if you with mobiles silent do attend,
we’ll make thee chortle, glad of both your ears to lend.

Boy meeteth girl. Boy loseth girl. Boy bareth soul.

Set in Shepherds Bush and centred on the end of a relationship, Broken fuses Shakespearean verse with modern dialogue to create an expressionistic satire on the highs and lows of falling in, and inevitably out, of love.

Running Time: 60 minutes

“And then there’s the best of the rest; in particular, Broken … The piece is unpretentious, flirty and witty, with a love affair that starts with a sneeze on the Tube and turns raunchy, raw and the victim of drink and unemployment.” – The Scotsman
