  • Winner: Judges Award, Bruntwood Prize for Playwriting 2013

Frankie's dead. And no one's quite sure why. But the boys won't talk about it. They can't. There are some truths that men can't share.

Luke Norris's So Here We Are is a play about what can happen when nothing happens, a compassionate look at young lives cut short and a touching portrait of childhood friendships under strain in adult life.

The play was a winner of a Judges Award at the 2013 Bruntwood Prize for Playwriting. It premiered at the HighTide Festival in September 2015, in a co-production with the Royal Exchange, Manchester, in a production directed by Steven Atkinson.

‘You was always good at secrets. Both of yer.’

Press Quotes

'Hurtles along like an express train... Norris writes sharp, fast dialogue that shows a real ear for everyday speech'

Guardian

'Peppered with witty one-liners and underscored by a poignant sense of loss... Norris's dialogue is razor sharp, and his portrayal of male friendships in a working-class Essex town feels spot on'

Financial Times

'There's plenty of dark humour in Norris' script, but also a masterly handling of unspoken grief... this powerful piece of writing will stick in the memory'
