Front Cover
Oberon Books, Jun 21, 2012 - Drama - 64 pages

Dead frogs and domestic savagery...
Deep in the English countryside a son returns home after an eight-year absence. An arsonist teenager, a small village, and a thatcher who hates Thatcher collide under the looming presence of a defunct currency-paper mill. Bud writes a twisted love song to an impoverished rural Britain. A darkly comic new drama by one of the UK’s most exciting new writing talents.‘Brennan’s coming of age as a truly significant voice in modern theatre’ -Broadway Baby

‘Drama of epic proportions’ - Metro

‘Brennan’s writing is sharply observed, economic and tightly plotted... this feels rather like watching Arthur Miller transported to the English countryside.’ - WhatsOnStage.com
