A short play about bereavement and discovery, by Matthew Dodge and Andrew Porter. My Boy was inspired by the death of Matthew's son Sean in a road accident on the Isle of Wight in 2003. The play was highly commended in our play writing competition, From Page to Stage, in 2014 and we worked with Matt and Andy to develop it for performance.
Performed by Origins Theatre at The Sail Loft, The Bargeman's Rest, Newport, Isle of Wight, on January 31 and February 5 2015; and on the opening night of Ventnor Fringe - August 11 - at the Crab and Lobster in Ventnor.
All performances were sold out.
