A play by Ian Winterton
‘Ooh, shit, time for Corrie. You’ve got to make time for Corrie haven’t you? You get yourself some sleep, Rose. While you’ve got the chance, like.’
Kidnap, cable-ties, curry and Corrie. Rose wakes blindfolded, gagged and tied to a bed — this is not a good thing. A coruscating journey into one woman’s nightmare that asks the question: can those children who commit the worst crimes imaginable ever be rehabilitated? Or forgiven?
Contains violence, sexual content and adult content.
Wednesday was first performed at The Kings Arms, Salford on July 14th 2009. It was directed by Trevor MacFarlane and starred Ruth Middleton as Rose, Simon Bates as Curtis and Jimmy Boyland as Daniel.
★★★★★ “The overwhelming darkness of it all might be too much for some – presenting itself as the grottiest possible form of redemption narrative, it packs a savage sting in its tail – but for those desensitised or open-minded enough to seek a point and structure amid all the squalor and atrocity, this is a stunning piece of abrasive, confrontational theatre, acted to perfection by its three-strong cast.”
