In Manchester, award-winning Organised Chaos Productions are staging Peacefully At Home, written by Nicola Schofield, at Taurus Bar, from 6th to 9th April.
In Peacefully At Home an unseen Dad drifts away upstairs, and Bridget and her grown up children gather for their last respects. As long held secrets threaten to be revealed, and new ones vie to be created, tensions crackle below the surface. Dad might be leaving peacefully, but will he be taking peace away with him?
Nicola Schofield won the 2004 Royal Exchange Theatre WRITE 2 Bruntwood Playwright competition with Maybe Tomorrow.
