Two disconnected teenage lads on a Scottish beach, one rootless girl. An arresting new voice in playwriting.

On the rain-lashed coast of Scotland, teenage brothers Callum and Gussie have just left their mother’s funeral. On the beach, they see something floating in the sea. But surely it can’t be what it looks like. The lads are desperate to discover what lies under the waves. When they encounter the runaway Harriet, their search is thrown into chaos and brother is pitted against brother.

Young Scottish writer Ali Taylor’s first play, Cotton Wool is a gripping and darkly comic tale of young lives on the edge. 

Cast : 2M, 2F
