The War On Terry

from Influencing Machine

“My girlfriend thinks I’m obsessed with death. Well maybe I am, but only as much as the next rotting sack of bones.”

It’s Terry’s birthday. At 27, he is now older than his older brother Danny.

With a shoebox full of dead ladybirds, Terry reminisces over their childhood, whilst fighting to come to terms with his regrets over how things could have been different. A darkly comic monologue about boys, Christmas socks and not growing up.

Developed in support of the Campaign Against Living Miserably (CALM) from a multi-award-nominated young playwright.
