  • Stewart Parker Trust Award - 2012

A tender and funny tale about our secret selves, No Romance is a play about our search for connection in a fractured world. It received the Stewart Parker Trust Award in 2012.

Laura has a secret. Joe's has been revealed. Peg's been keeping hers for years.

Rich with the absurdities, hypocrisies and vulnerabilities that course through our lives, Nancy Harris's No Romance playfully observes the longings, fears and desires we reveal - and don't reveal - in our closest relationships.

No Romance was first staged at the Abbey Theatre, Dublin, in 2011.
