Wretch

By Rebecca Walker

EPUB £3.99£3.19

An ex-teacher and an ex-junkie meet on a night bus during long, dark nights of homelessness.

A year on, Irena has rebuilt her life. But just as she thinks she is safe, Amy crashes head-first back into it with bigger dreams for life's second chances.

Rebecca Walker's play Wretch toured homeless hostels, drug rehabilitation clinics and drop-in centres in 2015 with Into The Wolf Productions. It was first performed at VAULT Festival, London, in February 2017.

Wretch is also available in the collection Plays from VAULT 2.

Press Quotes

'An ambitious piece, one that tackles homelessness, gender inequality, immigration, petty crime, friendship, loneliness, drug abuse, Russian literature, social media privacy settings, recovery, relapse, house prices, labour conditions, sexual favours, middle management motivational metaphors and much, much more... a spirit and optimism burst[s] through'

Exeunt Magazine

'Raw, poignant… an honest and sincere look at the harsh realities of life after homelessness… its humour does not detract from the serious nature of the content, but rather strengthens our attachment to the characters and makes the lows even more devastating'
