Burying Your Brother In The Pavement

This sparky, surprising, and brilliant exposition on grief, love, and family, bounds along thanks to a superbly talented young cast and pinpoint direction.

Written by Jack Thorne (Skins, This is England) it focuses on Tom (Matthew Doswell) as he grieves for his brother Luke (Jack Fisher), and his idiosyncratic plan to bury him under the pavement where he died.

In the process he comes across a rapid succession of unlikely characters, drawn with piercing accuracy by a flexible ensemble that nail the darkly comic tone.

Doswell leads superbly, evoking the confused surreal world of a grieving teen, barely absent from the stage during the hour-long run. Heather Kelly is brusquely sympathetic as his sister, and Ali Hunt a captivating modern street urchin.

This is a striking and heart-wrenching production with a very limited run; don’t miss it.
