CONSTRAINÈD THINGS

Writer

A Labour Prime Minister declares war on a Middle East country. His grasping wife loves power, and power dressing. As their dreams of glory and shopping unravel, the story interweaves another, earlier tale of over-reaching ambition.

A political re-imagining of Shakespeare's Macbeth, in light of the war in Iraq.

Winner of the Merseyside Left Theatre Trust Best New Play Award, 2004.
