A Graeae & Theatre Royal Plymouth Production.
Commissioned by Ramps on the Moon, presented in association with Curve.
An evocative play about the power of guilt and the quest for atonement, award-winning playwright Winsome Pinnock (Rockets and Blue Lights, Leave Taking) and Graeae’s Associate Director Amit Sharma (The Solid Life of Sugar Water, Cosmic Scallies) join forces to explore the fragility of human relationships in this reimagining of One Under.

‘I’m delighted to be re-visiting my 2005 play One Under for Graeae and Theatre Royal Plymouth. I’ve long admired Graeae’s mission and aesthetic, and have always wanted to work with them. I am excited to be working with Amit on exploring the world that the characters inhabit and I’m really looking forward to seeing how new audiences up and down the country will respond to the play.‘ Winsome Pinnock
