  • Joint Winner of the 2008 Bruntwood Prize for Playwriting

A shattering and heartbreaking play, joint winner of the Bruntwood Playwriting Competition.

From the moment he came into the world as the snow fell and the cold wind blew, Oscar's existence has been a stagger through an underworld peopled by loners and losers. He's aching to piece it together, but the figures that clot his life are unwilling to fix him when they're unable to fix themselves.

Oscar must discover if a bird with a broken wing can learn to fly, or is destined to stay earthbound for ever.

Andrew Sheridan's play Winterlong was joint winner of the 2008 Bruntwood Prize for Playwriting. It was first staged at the Royal Exchange Theatre, Manchester, in 2011.

Press Quotes

Independent

'Full of passages of astonishing writing... unbearable to watch but unforgettable; strange yet completely recognisable'

Guardian

'It takes a real poet of the theatre to find the gems in the rotting bodies of dross'
