Making Mischief: Two Radical New Plays

by Tom Morton-Smith, Matt Hartley, Kirsty Housley

The Making Mischief Festival features work from some of today’s most exciting playwrights who are challenging and questioning our society. The Festival runs from 24 May to 17 June from The Other Place Studio Theatre, Stratford-upon-Avon.

THE EARTHWORKS: “The universe doesn’t care if we know how it works.”

On the eve of the activation of the Large Hadron Collider, two strangers – a journalist and a scientist – share their experiences of loss and hope in a funny but deeply touching one-act play.

MYTH:“I can only see wrong choices. Things that will make everything worse.”

In one wine-fuelled evening, two couples debate their materialistic lifestyle. As their dinner party descends into chaos, their friendship and their lives are irreparably changed. A play about those things we don’t want to see or say.
