From Bury based playwright and comedian Lewis Charlesworth comes a new tale of a divided family, in troubling times…

Northern England, 2015. Mary is poor, old, alone and angry.

With only her clingy neighbour to talk to, she secretly awaits the arrival of a long-lost relative. But revealing him could cause quite a stir.

The Greek is a tender comedy-drama about British identity, and the humanity on both sides of a divided country.

From the writer of last year’s acclaimed Cheaters: A play About Infidelity.

Long-listed for the Lancaster Playwriting Prize.
