Shortlisted for the Brighton Fringe Emerging Talent Award 2013 at Edinburgh Fringe. Inspired by the London riots of 2011, the subsequent pronouncements of politicians and the criminalisation of many who took part, this two hander explores the enduring legacy of London's riots in 2011.

Chalk Farm Summary

Chalk Farm by Kieran Hurley

Shortlisted for the Brighton Fringe Emerging Talent Award 2013 at the Edinburgh Fringe. Maggie is just in from Sainsbury's Local to make a quick sandwich for Jamie. He likes his cheese and pickle. With the crusts off. A good heart, that lad. Not like those other boys around here. You know what boys are like. Laws unto themselves once they reach that age. But it's those other boys, really. Not Jamie. A boy with a Batman lunch box? What harm is he to anybody? Co-written by AJ Taudevin and Kieran Hurley, Chalk Farm explores love, responsibility, and the culture of blame and retribution surrounding the 2011 English riots.

Chalk Farm Reviews

The writing is brilliant, sharp, poetic, passionate, full of searing insight into the politics of blame, matched with a brilliant eye for the detail of life in divided Britain today. * Joyce McMillan, Scotsman *
This deceptively simple two-hander comes courtesy of Kieran Hurley and AJ Taudevin, two of Scotland's rising new writing stars * Guardian *
A tender study of the complicated relationship between a single parent and her son - it has a beautiful heart * Time Out *
Most effective in making us rethink our knee-jerk assumptions. * Guardian *
The end result is a not-to-be missed piece of dynamite that succeeds in making the political personal, and vice-versa - The writing crackles with energy and insight * Herald Scotland *
