A searing new play by a Bruntwood Prize-winning playwright.

Alex has his flat. His home. He’s building a life with Clare. Nothing can derail his happiness - he just wishes those kids would stop hanging round outside his house. But they’re just kids, with nothing to do. They’re not dangerous, right?

Microcosm premiered at the Soho Theatre, London, in May 2014.

'builds suspense marvellously... chilling and ominous'

- The Upcoming

'compelling... Hartley is particularly perceptive in capturing the sweet strangeness of people, their moments of agreement and rapture, hilarity and repugnance'

- Exeunt Magazine

'Hitchcockian... an intelligent and considered piece of theatre'

- Huffington Post

Matt Hartley is a playwright. His play Sixty Five Miles won the Under-26 Prize in the inaugural Bruntwood Prize for Playwriting. He has also written for radio and television.
