The Collywobbles by Brendan Murray was written in response to the HIV/AIDS crisis, and was first performed in 1993. The play is still poignantly relevant today, and has timely resonances of the present pandemic. 

This play reading is organised by Darren Cheek’s theatre company Damn Cheek, and is directed by Brendan Murray himself.

After the reading, you’ll have the chance to ask the cast and writer questions in a Q&A session.

To reserve your place, simply email Damn Cheek directly. They’ll send you details of how to join nearer the time.

From Damn Cheek’s website:

Bunny and Vi – the 2 surviving members of a former song-and-dance act – are compelled to confront past guilt and imminent death when a young man arrives at their remote and precarious home.

Who is the young man? A BBC talent scout or the chap from the Co-Op funeral service? Why has he come now? What really happened that day in 1940 at the Palmer’s Green Hippodrome? And what about those ruddy geese?

We hope to see you online!

All at Relational Spaces.
