A reclusive writer. A massive bestseller. A dark secret.
What are you willing to forget?
What are you willing to forgive?
A reclusive children’s writer becomes wildly successful. Her books are treasured across the country. But when a troubling narrative starts to unfold, we find ourselves asking: what matters more, the storyteller or the story? HEATHER is a short, sharp play about language, prejudice and the power of stories.
After two highly successful 3-week runs at Bewley’s Cafe Theatre and a sizzling outing at Belltable in Limerick in 2020, HEATHER is finally back on tour. Don’t miss this challenging mystery!
Thomas Eccleshare has won the Verity Bargate Awards, the Catherine Johnson Award and was the recipient of the inaugural JJ BAFTA Screenwriting Bursary. He is currently developing HEATHER for TV.
