We’re delighted to welcome back renowned company Paines Plough with a hilarious and heart-warming celebration of teen friendships, from one of Britain’s most exciting playwrights.
The point is: we’re losers. Nobodies. Carry on like this, we’re losers forever. And we don’t have to be. Fresh start, two months to completely one hundred per cent reinvent ourselves. And I know exactly how we can do that.
Broken Biscuits is a highly anticipated new play from Yorkshire playwright Tom Wells, following huge success with The Kitchen Sink, Folk and Jumpers For Goalposts. It tells the laugh out-loud and surprisingly moving story of Megan, Holly and Ben in their post-GCSE summer; navigating their way through growing up, sexuality, bullying, friendship and lad culture, all while starting a band. Rock on.
It is brought to Bristol by Paines Plough who were also behind the phenomenally successful Every Brilliant Thing, which played at Tobacco Factory Theatres last October. Featuring music by West Country artist Matthew Robins, inspired by bands such as Pulp, Belle & Sebastian and The Smiths.
