Aled, Brian, Mary and Martin were inseparable. Mary and Martin even got married and had a son, Jack. But that was a long time ago. Now, they barely talk.
After a car accident leaves Jack in hospital, the four former friends find themselves back under one roof, to support each other, clear the air and, in some cases, attempt to cross burnt bridges.
Brittle and funny, ‘Crash’ is an intimate play asking does a lie become the truth over time, and what does it take to change it back?
This candid club night will consist of discussion about relationships, what constitutes a good lie or a bad lie or a lie of omission. We’ll also look at improvising some scenes from anecdotes anonymously volunteered by attendees (and some provided from my research) and looking at some set pages from the text.
