Work in progress

Whack-A-Mole is a comi-tragedy featuring three generations of women with mild autism spectrum condition, struggling in today’s austerity Britain. Rachel with (Aspergers) is carer for the other two while also working as a music teacher.

As she battles with the system to try to future proof for her teenage daughter Flo (also with a learning disability) and her mother Peony (with onset dementia) an unexpected turn of events offers them a permanent, if not risk-free, means of escape. As Rachel is forced to adjust her moral compass and make a life-changing decision, she and her mother and daughter soon find themselves fighting for their very existence…

A feminist Breaking Bad set in an insular community, the play explores the moral conflicts faced by those subject to today’s hostile environment.
