There is limited availability of this title. Please enquire before placing your order.

A play about freedom, guilt and the possibility of redemption.

Following a fight at a restaurant in Middlesbrough in which a man is badly injured, one man is sent to prison. The other man involved goes free, yet it is a freedom full of burden. Out of the blue, a figure from the family past arrives and another kind of escape is on offer.

Robert Holman's play Bad Weather was first performed by the Royal Shakespeare Company at The Other Place, Stratford-upon-Avon, in April 1998, directed by Steven Pimlott.

Press Quotes

'The emotional fluidity of Bad Weather's characters, their capacity for surprising - almost shocking - changes of direction, and their literacy in discussing how they feel, make this sincere, absorbing play as contemporary as anything by the new nihilists'
