Chapel Street

Length: 62 pages58 minutes


‘If I died tomorrow, I would have died having done nothing.

So I made a promise there and then that we would live

tonight like it was our last’

He’s been let down, belittled and ignored but tonight none of

that matters – it’s Friday and Joe is getting smashed. Kirsty has

bought some vodka on the way home from school and is hastily

shaving her legs with her friend’s dad’s razor. As bottles are

drained and the sun sets the two hit the town, neither aware

that soon their lives will irreconcilably collide.

Chapel Street is the debut play from one of the UK’s most

exciting new writers, Luke Barnes. Crackling with energy

and dripping with humour it is an acerbic yet compassionate

portrait of good times gone bad for a betrayed generation,

which carries a pertinence in the wake of David Cameron

addressing ‘Broken Britain’.
