This Must Be the Place
This Must Be the Place is a play comprising two short ballads about migration, missed connections, and life on the edge of respectability.
Two friends, fugitives from their problems, try and start again in the big smoke but find themselves waiting on the margins still. A man in the midst of crisis tries for a clean break from technology, connectivity and the pressures of city life.
Brad Birch and Kenneth Emson’s This Must Be the Place was first performed at Latitude Festival in July 2016, before transferring to the 2017 VAULT Festival, London, where it was named Show of the Year.
'A very modern tale of very modern detachment, written with humour and vigour... observant, angry, compelling, oh, and it's funny too. Very funny.'LondonTheatre1
'A dynamic piece of new writing… freshly biting and crisply unsentimental'Exeunt Magazine
