  • Critics' Circle Most Promising Playwright Award - 2013

A witty and heartfelt look at a family falling apart – and pulling together – when life doesn’t turn out quite the way they imagined.

Joint Winner of the Critics' Circle Most Promising Playwright Award, 2013

It's Andy Griffith's twenty-first birthday. Not that he's counting. But his mother Carol is. Counting the minutes until he arrives, counting the unexpected guests, counting the times that something like this has happened before.

Set Text >> The Herd is a set text for AQA English Language and Literature AS & A-Level.

'I think it's better if I say this now rather than risk it coming out wrong in the heat of the moment: I find it very difficult to even look at you. What you have put my family through in the last fifteen years I would not wish on my worst enemy. Which, unsurprisingly, is you.'

Press Quotes

Evening Standard

'grips like a vice'

Whatsonstage.com
