  • Winner of the Meyer-Whitworth Award - 2009

A gripping and darkly comic tale of young lives on the edge.

The lads have just left their mother's funeral. At the beach, they see something floating in the sea. It can't be what it looks like. Can it?

On the rain-lashed coast of Scotland, teenage brothers Callum and Gussie are desperate to discover what lies under the waves. When they spot the runaway Harriet, their search is thrown into chaos and brother is pitted against brother.

Ali Taylor's play Cotton Wool received its European premiere at Staatsschauspiel Dresden in January 2008, and was staged at Theatre503, London, in April 2008. It won the 2009 Meyer-Whitworth Award.
