Synopsis


A touching two-hander examining friendship and the relativity of suffering.


"Remember Steve Irwin?


Steve Irwin didn't do any of that pussying around Attenborough shit."


Harry is homeless, reckless, and overly invested in the documentaries of David Attenborough.


Mia has everything he doesn't, yet still feels like she's suffocating.


The two of them have been squatting together for a few weeks, but when 'real life' isn't quite what Mia expected, and Harry finds that being a 'good person' isn't always easy, things start to get fractious.


Together, Harry and Mia navigate growing up, loving, violence, and how to become invisible in a world that wants you to be seen.


'Spiders' is a witty, touching piece of new writing that asks: is your suffering still valid, if another's is greater?


Longlisted for the Bruntwood Prize for Playwriting in 2015, the play debuted at the Corpus Playroom in Cambridge to rave reviews.
