How would your life look if you could change the choices you made?


SHADOW LIVES is about the choices we make and how they can affect our whole life, and how sometimes they aren’t really choices at all. And it’s also about redemption and forgiveness and how whatever bad choices we make, it’s still sometimes possible to be forgiven. It’s a two-hander, set on the same day, and presents several main concurrent stories of how the main characters life would have turned out depending on the choices they made earlier in their life.



A young woman from a small left-behind rural town, Perry (19), is lost and drifting. It's a year since her dad's death and she spends most of her time hanging around The Shires, the local shopping centre, drinking cider and smoking dope with her rightwing mate Spencer. When she strikes up an unlikely friendship with Graham the Carry-Bag-Man, a local character who usually speaks to no one, Spencer isn't happy – he has it in for Graham, and for some other people in the town. But could the weird old man be Perry’s saviour? 

The play is about losing your way and finding it again; it's about small-town life and the left behind; and it's about grief and the pain of losing your dad so young

Alex has a lot to live for: his friendship with his flat mate Serena, his lovely mum, his passion for Bake Off, his budding stand-up career and his fledgling romance with the beautiful Barista from Pret. So why has he taken an overdose and is in hospital, with a medical team fighting for his life? Will he survive and does he even want to?


In this single-hander he tells us his story, as we find out how he got to this frightening point in his life.
