By Matt Hartley

Ebook £7.99£6.39

Tempers are fraying in the scorching heat as a rural village is overwhelmed by noise, cars and day trippers… Scratch the surface and you'll find danger bubbling away.

Matt Hartley's captivating short play Idyll was first presented as an open-air production by Pentabus Theatre Company in 2021.

Idyll is also available in the volume The Wife of Cyncoed & Idyll: Two Plays.

'A map does not really tell you about the people who live in it.
Their tics, their traits.
So that is what I am here to do.
I am going to bring them and the story to life.'

Press Quotes
