  • Soho Theatre Young Writer's Award - 2015

A chilling and powerful modern Medea about motherhood and class, taking an unapologetic look at the single young mum, the one already judged before she's even opened her mouth.

This is Sam. Young, impulsive, single mum. Londoner born and bred and never ever left. Sam makes her mistakes, but who can blame her?

Tom rents the flat above, the one Sam cleans. If they can come to 'an arrangement' he won't call the Social on her. You might think Tom is a monster. You might think Sam's kids would be better off without her. Someone needs to make a decision.

Winner of the Soho Theatre Young Writer's Award, Phoebe Eclair-Powell's play Fury premiered at Soho Theatre, London, in July 2016.
