‘Well, answer your own question. I did 1,800 miles in the caravan and drank three gallons of cider. So I’ll ask you whether or not it was a good weekend.’
A couple peer into an estate agent’s window; two sports fans have a heart-to- heart in the loo; a daughter has questions about her mother’s love life; and as a father helps his son tie his football boots, he realises they are growing apart. If you keep your eyes and ears open, there are a million tiny plays happening every day.
Overheard conversations from across the country form Craig Taylor’s humorous and poignant look at modern Britain. Laugh-out-loud funny, and sometimes heartbreakingly moving, these miniature insights into other people’s lives reveal the triumphs, disasters, horrors and joys of life in the twenty-first century.
Originally published in The Guardian, this collage of scenes now form a hugely entertaining show. Following its premiere at The Watermill in 2016 and a hotly anticipated London transfer, One Million Tiny Plays About Britain returns.
