Fanny and Faggot

By Jack Thorne

EPUB £7.99£6.40

A two-part play presenting two distinct moments in the life of Mary Bell, the eleven-year-old Newcastle girl who was convicted of the manslaughter of two toddlers in 1968.

In the first part, Two Little Boys, two actors play childish games that gradually reveal the facts of the case, stepping in and out of several roles including judges, parents and abusers.

The second part, Superstar, takes place ten years later in 1978. Mary and a friend from the open prison where she is serving her sentence abscond for the weekend to Blackpool, where they meet two young soldiers on leave from Northern Ireland.

Note for Performers: the two parts can be performed together or separately. The fee quoted is for both parts being performed together.

Jack Thorne's play Fanny and Faggot was first performed at the Finborough Theatre, London, in January 2007. (A version of the first part of the play, Two Little Boys, was staged at the Lift venue at the Pleasance as part of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in August 2004).

Fanny and Faggot is also available in the volume Stacy & Fanny and Faggot: Two Plays.

Press Quotes

'Jack Thorne is hot... a darkly gripping achievement, probing the most horrifying extremes of human behaviour with compassion and a rigorous moral and intellectual curiosity'
