Set in Croydon, South London, Dean McBride by Sonya Hale is a vivid and poetic story of deprivation, loss and redemption through love, which tells the story of Dean, a young man hardened by suffering, who struggles in life before finding his way back to happiness.

A monologue play, Dean McBride was a finalist in the inaugural Heretic Voices competition, presenting the best new writing in monologue form, and celebrating unique voices with exceptional stories to tell. It was first performed at the Arcola Theatre, London, in 2018.

Dean McBride is also available in the volume Heretic Voices: Three Award-winning Monologues.

Press Quotes

'Hale's skilled use of language and razor-sharp writing captures [her character's] defiance, his humour and his take on the world with vivid intensity… filled with heart, compassion and fury'

LondonTheatre1

'Hale finds energetic rhythm in effervescent South London slang… the writing has authenticity'

The Stage

'Damn this play is good… Hale captures the rhythms of south London slang that have been underappreciated for its musicality and comic potential'
