Amy Loughton

“So you’re stuck under a rock and the only way to escape is to cut your own hand off…would you do it? would you though? in real life?”

A Finborough Theatre commission, following a highly successful staged reading at Vibrant 2012 – A Festival of Finborough Playwrights and its world premiere run at Germany’s Dresden Staatshauspeel, a UK premiere from award-winning playwright, Pamela Carter.

Afghanistan. Amongst the debris of a bomb-attack blast, four young British soldiers try to pick up the pieces.

The UK. A couple worry about the strange behaviour of their nine year old son and his imaginary friend as their marriage crumbles around them.

Separated by 3000 miles, but they are all in it together…

Exploring themes of war, trauma, kinship and empathy, Almost Near is a stunning new play about wanting to be a part of something, and what it means to be alive.

Directed by Audrey Sheffield. Designed by Fly Davis. Lighting Design by Peter Small. Sound Design by Max Pappenheim.

Cast also includes Mariam Haque. Tom McCall. Kate Miles. Oliver Mott. Adam Philps. Michael Sheldon.
