By Morgan Lloyd Malcolm


A young female soldier returns from Afghanistan to a home she no longer recognises or connects with. She has proved herself in combat - but her hardest battle is yet to come, as she navigates family politics, old relationships, and the memory of betrayal.

From the deserts of a modern war to the battleground of a family kitchen, Morgan Lloyd Malcolm's explosive play delves into one woman's quest for identity and a place she can call home.

Belongings was first staged at Hampstead Theatre Downstairs in 2011, transferring to the Trafalgar Studios in the West End. Morgan Lloyd Malcolm was nominated for the Charles Wintour Most Promising Playwright Award (Evening Standard Awards).

This edition is published by Oberon Books, an imprint of Bloomsbury Publishing Plc.
