A tense relationship drama which examines how the effects of one moment can ripple through a galaxy of lives.

An ordinary summer's day. Liam is about to make a decision he will spend a lifetime regretting. One day. One mistake. Seven futures sent spiralling.

From service stations to sea fronts, Blister explores the limits of forgiveness and the tragic permanence of trauma.

Laura Lomas's play Blister was first performed at Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama, in collaboration with Paines Plough, before performances at the Gate Theatre, London.
