A darkly comic debut play about buried secrets and new beginnings.

In three linked scenes, all set in the same terraced house, three ill-matched pairs search for a new beginning – but the past won’t let any of them go without a struggle.

Teenager Richard is plotting his escape to art college, just as lecturer Graham is settling in. Mum-to-be Laura has big plans for her forever home – if only Becci will sell it to her. And in the middle of the night, marine expert Mark has an unexpected visitor, a young woman with more than paddleworm samples on her mind…

A story of buried secrets and new beginnings, Forever House is the debut play of West Country-born writer Glenn Waldron. It’s a pitch-black comedy drama that asks the question: can you ever really start again?

Forever House was first performed at the Drum Theatre, Plymouth, in March 2013.
