Closer to God
- Overall Winner, OffCut Festival - 2009
A young single mother lives next door to a seventy-nine-year-old man on the 19th floor of a council block. Their interweaving monologues lay bare the differences and connections that can exist between people, living in the sky, just the other side of the thin wall.
This short two-hander from the writer of Yen and Chicken Shop explores the private worlds of strangers, living side by side but generations apart.
Anna Jordan's play Closer to God was first performed at the Old Red Lion, London, in 2009 as part of the inaugural OffCut Festival, directed by the author. It received the Overall Winner and Audience Choice Award.
Closer to God is also available in a volume with Pop Music.
