Abi Morgan: Plays One

Abi Morgan


Tiny Dynamite: An impossible love story is given a second chance and three scorched characters are about to learn that lightning does strike twice.

Splendour:  Inside a beautiful state residence on the edge of a city, four women wait. They talk: films, Prada, chilli vodka, anything. Outside civil war looms ever nearer.

Tender: In a city of fast talk and chance encounters, how much faith can we put in other people? Abi Morgan’s acerbic play takes a scalpel to modern love and friendship.

Lovesong: The story of one couple, told from two different points in their lives – as young lovers in their twenties and as worldly companions looking back on their relationship.

27: Dr Richard Garfield has given Ursula a difficult choice. She is the Mother Superior in waiting of a convent that has been given the opportunity to take part in his revolutionary scientific study. Ursula must weigh up the value of preserving her faith, versus embracing science.

'Playwrights are usually praised for their compassion. But every now and then they deserve some applause for iciness: for a clear-sighted, dry-eyed look at things, particularly at women things. You get that coolness from Abi Morgan.' The Guardian

Where so many writers relentlessly hammer the message home, Abi Morgan lets subtlety, and often what is not said, be a more telling voice.
