Dom’s Drug Prayer

By Connor Allen

Director Samantha Alice Jones

Performer Olatunji Ayofe

Praying for the first time can’t be that difficult, can it?

Contains strong language and references to drugs.

TEN is all about giving you a short theatre fix that you can fit into your day. It’s the perfect accompaniment to a coffee break or the end of a day of remote working or when the children have finally gone to bed and you can finally put your feet up. The ten plays have been written by an exceptional line-up of emerging and established Welsh and Wales-based writers and are being self-filmed by a brilliant cast of actors.

TEN is made possible by a generous donation from an anonymous benefactor.

TEN is inspired by Papatango’s Isolated But Open programme.

Q&A with Connor Allen

What inspires you as a writer?

As a writer the thing that inspires me is telling stories that are representative of my background and experience. If people like me can see themselves or hear their voices on a creative platform then they feel more empowered and more like they are being heard.

Tell us something about the play you have written for TEN

The play I’ve written for TEN was partially inspired by growing up on my estate but also wanting to question why people do the things they do. No one is born that way so I like to question why people end up doing the things they do.
