Synopsis:

It is the summer of 2010. Despite the rapid erosion of Fairwold’s coastline and a global recession threatening local businesses, ex-celebrity photographer David Tiller and his sister Sophie are managing to run their old family home as a guest house. But their peaceful existence is threatened when their one-time brother-in-law Lawrence and his stunning new girlfriend decide to spend a weekend by the sea...

 

Our Brother David is a poignant tale of misplaced love, and a lively story of people trying to do the right thing in a crisis. Rich in humour, this beautiful new play, inspired by Chekhov’s masterpiece Uncle Vanya, could make you think differently about the future.

 

Reviews:

"David is the kind of character you'd hate to be left alone in a room with and yet his wisdom, however painful, hits home."  Watford Observer

 

"Anthony Clark's New Play is a 21st century mirro to Chekhov's Uncle Vanya, refracting that drama's plot and themes through the concerns of our times." The Times
