Rock

By Chris Bush

EPUB £10.99£8.79

Susie used to be a rocker. Susie used to be a radical. Susie was the future once, but that was a long time ago. It's been fifty years since her father bought an old scissor factory, and handed it over to her brother to run. Now Eddie's dead, and finally it's her time in the spotlight. She has big plans for it. She's turning up the volume. She's going to make this city sing again, if it's the last thing she does.

Rock is a play about family, heritage and legacy, and is part of Chris Bush's triptych of plays about a Sheffield manufacturing family, Rock / Paper / Scissors. The three plays were first performed simultaneously with the same cast moving between three theatres in Sheffield – the Crucible, the Lyceum and the Studio – as part of Sheffield Theatres' fiftieth birthday celebrations in 2022.

Blog Post: 'The concept was absurd. How do you even begin to plan something like this? I had no idea. Of course I said yes immediately.' Chris Bush on her triptych of plays, Rock / Paper / Scissors. Read more on our blog>>

'I'll fight for this. I'll fight to leave something behind. Tell me you can see it. Tell me you can hear it. Close your eyes and it just comes pouring out of the walls.'

Press Quotes

'Chris Bush's writing is funny, dry, and full of knowing references to Sheffield's past and present without ever becoming cloyingly sentimental, with moments of great exhilaration and a real sense of poignancy'
