  • Winner: Papatango New Writing Competition - 2012

A raw, uncompromising drama about bigotry and racism that explores the insidious rise of the British National Party.

As a BNP rally gathers momentum on the streets outside, four women meet to play bridge. Struggling to find common ground, they talk about the men they married, their gifted and delinquent children and what their own heritage means. But beliefs and loyalties are tested to the limit when Stephie's fourteen year old son, Jack, is implicated in a brutal racist attack that leaves an eleven year old Pakistani boy close to death.

Louise Monaghan's play Pack won the 2012 Papatango New Writing Competition and was first staged at the Finborough Theatre, London, in 2012.
