“I should be worrying now. Why am I not worrying? Why am I not sad"


Laura’s home from work. Laura is hungry. Laura has something to say.

A monologue play exploring harsh decision-making in a world of celebrity subcultures and rising temperatures, Laura was shortlisted for The Pleasance Young Playwriting Competition. It subsequently premiered downstairs at The Pleasance, Islington, on 18 December 2018, directed by Andrew Pritchard, performed by Renee Bailey.

"Laura is a heart-wrenching account of abortion that shows some deft characterization. The candor of this piece is a real achievement"
