By Alan Harries. Every Wednesday evening, Jimmy calls Kitty. For precisely nine minutes. At £1.20 a minute.Jimmy is thirty-four, lives with his mum and works at Newport's only drive-through doughnut restaurant. Kitty is an adult chatline operator, living in the granny flat of a topiary enthusiast. Things were looking up for Jimmy, but then he loses his job and he begins to disappear, starting with his hands. Will this unlikely duo succeed in turning each other's world upside down? How My Light Is Spent is a funny, hopeful play about loneliness, longing and being left behind. Winner of the Judges' Award in the 2015 Bruntwood Prize for Playwriting, it premiered in 2017 at the Royal Exchange Theatre, Manchester, in a co-production with Sherman Theatre, Cardiff, and Theatre by the Lake, Keswick
