Heroin(e) for Breakfast
by Philip Stokes
Can heroin put the Great back in Britain?
Three flatmates battle Marilyn Monroe, cultural identity and snowflake mediocrity to save us all!
Playwright Philip Stokes was recently named by the British Library as one of the Culturally Important Playwrights of the 21st Century. In 2009, (***** Scotsman, Sunday Telegraph, Fest) his award-winning play exploded at the Edinburgh Fringe going on to play sell-out seasons in London, Adelaide and Chicago. Ten years later, the original creative team reunited to revisit the play in a new production which premiered at the 2019 Edinburgh Fringe and again was the hit of the fringe connecting with a whole new generation of theatregoers and where its powerful themes and subject matter that was once a warning is a prophecy that today has become reality.
‘Quite astonishingly accomplished, so beautifully written, that it takes one’s breath away’ **** Sunday Telegraph
‘An astonishingly intelligent piece of work’ ***** (Fest)
