On the Shore of the Wide World

On the Shore of the Wide WorldT1291186771
Stockport 2004. Peter Holmes' dad is mastering his card tricks. His sons are plotting ways of leaving home. His wife has never looked so tired. And something is about to happen that will change all their lives forever. Set over the course of nine months, On the Shore of the Wide World is an epic play about love, family, Roy Keane and the size of the galaxy. It is also a play about recovery.
Author Simon Stephens
