Muswell Hill Summary

Muswell Hill by Torben Betts

One night in January 2010 and an earthquake in Haiti leaves around a hundred thousand people dead and almost two million homeless. Meanwhile, somewhere in a leafy North London suburb, a group of six individuals convene over avocado and prawns, followed by a monkfish stew. They struggle with worries over their mortgages, their mobile phone tariffs, their Facebook friends, their careers, their love lives, their diets, their alcohol intake, their holiday plans and whether or not any of them will be able to make any lasting impression on history.

Muswell Hill Reviews

"""Torben Betts is one of the most exciting theatre writing talents I have come across in many a year"" - Alan Ayckbourn ""Betts has a profound and highly original theatrical voice"" - Daily Telegraph ""Just about the most original and extraordinary writer of drama we have...a boldly visionary poet... a political Beckett... a flamingly original writer we ignore at our peril.' - Liz Lochhead, National Poet Of Scotland "What starts out as a mildly amusing comedy of social dysfunctionality turns into something altogether darker and less comfortable" - The Stage 'An astute and multifaceted diagnosis of a very modern malaise.' - Time Out (Critics Choice)"
