Gundog, The Royal Court Theatre

“Land beneath our feet. Got all our blood inside it hasn’t it? All that time. Belongs to us.”

On a farm in the middle of nowhere, sisters Becky and Anna try to hold their family together after the death of their mother.

Time is always moving somewhere – but here it’s very quiet. When they discover a stranger wandering  aimlessly across the land, the three establish an unlikely partnership in their determination to survive.

We’ll be alright. Like you said. Some lambs. Some life.” 

Writer Simon Longman makes his debut at the Royal Court with the production directed by Royal Court Artistic Director Vicky Featherstone. Simon took part in the Royal Court Theatre’s Young Writer’s Programme in 2013 and has since won the Channel 4 Playwright’s Scheme. His produced work includes White Sky (Royal Court/RWCMD) and Sparks (Old Red Lion).
