Joe White’s tender and wise debut play is suffused with grief and loss yet remains refreshingly, surprisingly, heartbreakingly funny. We observe a family coming to terms with grief in their own unique way over the events of one important day.

Ben thinks his family might be better off without him, but his wife Cat has read her stars: ‘Today a very special person will appear from out the blue”. A young man is drawn into their lives, into their struggles.

The author scratches at the fragility of our existence and asks how we keep alive our memories of those we have lost. It’s a play about people consumed by misery yet it is unexpectedly funny and – like its dented, broken characters – always likeable.

Mayfly debuted in London in April 2018 to critical acclaim and Street Theatre have been granted special permission to perform it for the very first time by an amateur group. Join us to celebrate this exciting new play by an exciting new playwright.

Please note the play contains strong language

This is an amateur production by arrangement with Nick Hern Books
