Frequent Seismic Activity

Monday October 14th brings us a new play by PP debutant Andy Moseley, who is a graduate of UEAs Creative Writing Masters Programme. He has written several performed plays including Casual Encounters, which enjoyed a sell out run at Etcetera Theatre, Camden in 2013, Are You Lonesome Tonight? A Bridge Game Too Far (winner of the Roy Purdue New Writing Trophy at the Orange Tree Theatre, Richmond, 2011) Heart Shaped Box and Going For Gold. His book, Around the States in 90 Days was published in 2009, and is the true story of a road trip across the USA and Canada in 2006. So he's been around the block. Here's what he says:

"Frequent Seismic Activity is a play about a family holiday at the time of the Ash Cloud that caused flight cancellations and disruptions for weeks in 2010. The family’s relationship mirrors that of the Eyjafjallaj√∂kull volcano, with issues and tensions that were building up before the holiday started, causing minor eruptions when they reach their destination. The fallout from these combine to make a major incident inevitable once the real ash cloud makes escape impossible. Whether things settle down afterwards, or whether the volcano remains active is open to question".

7.30 at the Three Stags.
