A moving, poignant and funny family drama that sees the weight of family history, of reputation, and of expectation, all descend on one family over Easter weekend in 1997.
For more than seventeen years, the Pennington family has never been together in the same room. But now, on the eve of William’s seventy-fifth birthday, all three generations have gathered with the intention of putting the past behind them. If only it were that simple…
And time is running out. Especially for William, as the world he has always known begins to crumble around him.
The Gathered Leaves premiered at Park Theatre, London, in July 2015.
