The Empty Quarter

By Alexandra Wood

Paperback £9.99£7.99

A play confronting the challenges we face in a foreign land, asking where, or to whom, we belong.

Dubai seems to offer British twenty-somethings Greg and Holly everything they could want: tax-free income, a brand-new apartment and an exotic landscape waiting to be explored. But surviving on the edge of a desert, in a society they don't understand, proves more difficult than they could have imagined. They soon start to question why it is they came, and whether they'll ever get home.

Alexandra Wood's play The Empty Quarter was first staged at Hampstead Theatre Downstairs, London, in September 2013.
