Devon. A dishevelled Christian and a chain-smoking Marxist. One epic battle to have the final word on a relationship that didn’t happen. Time is running out to put this complicated past away for good.
Before the wreckage of thongs, dolls, and skipping rope falls beneath a rising tide, Lucy and Nancy have a chance to face some hard truths and rediscover a once-simple intimacy. To return to the moulding arcades and the decimated railway track and determine where it all began. Or, rather, how it might all end.
Conceived by Torbay-based writer Holly Fitzpatrick, LAVENDER is a furiously funny, feminist play about fighting for authorship over a past shared with someone you don’t speak to anymore.
