Show Information

For Once

From multi-award winning Welsh playwright Tim Price, this highly acclaimed drama was inspired by a week spent in a Welsh borders market town and the young people he met there.

Life, love and loss in a picture postcard town are laid bare in this heartbreaking but darkly comic new play. Through a series of intertwining accounts, For Once cuts to the heart of a family, and a community, turned upside down by tragedy.

 'An elegant, elegiac three-hander winds, with wry humour and occasional mineshafts of buried feeling... Impressive stuff all round' * * * * Evening Standard, Critics' Choice

 'Wry, compassionate and thought provoking' 
* * * * Time Out, Critics' Choice

 'A funny, but deeply sympathetic piece... But it is also laugh-out-loud funny in places in Orla O’Loughlin’s deft production, a fine cast delivers it beautifully' * * * * Financial Times
