Thomas Eccleshare

PaperBack (03 Aug 2017)

A reclusive children's writer becomes wildly successful. Her books are treasured across the country. But when a troubling narrative starts to unfold, we find ourselves asking: What matters more, the storyteller or the story?

Heather is a short, sharp play about language, prejudice and the power of stories.

'The twists comes think and fast in a show about identity, performance and authorship... What Heather does very well is to go beyond simply offering ‘a twist’, but to challenge audience assumptions about who gets to tell stories... consistently thrilling and stuffed to the gills with ideas that resonate perfectly with the big themes of identity.' Time Out

'Thomas Eccleshare's nifty theatrical triptych... raises some big aesthetic conundrums with a really light touch... Eccleshare toys with the rules of representation throughout. There's politics in that: the idea that anyone should be able to represent anything.' WhatsOnStage
