Rory Mullarkey returns to the Royal Court following his debut there with The Wolf from the Door in 2014.
In the same year, he was awarded the George Devine Award, the Pinter Commission, and the James Tait Black Prize for Drama.
Sam Pritchard's previous work for the Royal Court includes Grimly Handsome and B.
"Two bombs in one day is a foul coincidence
Don't forget the lightning strike"
A normal day.
A person stands in the market square watching the world go by.
What happens next verges on the ridiculous.
There's ice cream. Sunshine. Shops. Some dogs. A wedding. Bombs. Candles. Blood. Lightning. Sandwiches. Snipers. Looting. Gunshots. Babies. Actors. Azaleas. Famine. Fountains. Statues. Atrocities.
And tanks. (Probably).
Rory Mullarkey's new play asks whether things really are getting worse.
And if we care.
