Chapel Street by Luke Barnes
“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.”
Sweaty, fuzzy-tongued and drenched in booze, Chapel Street brings you a night of carnage in the lives of Kirsty and Joe. Hilarious, heart-breaking, and compelling throughout, it provides a crackling mix of poetry and profanity that takes on a deep resonance in light of David Cameron addressing Broken Britain. Scrawl presents this debut play from one of the UK’s most exciting new writers, Luke Barnes.
