Trestle

In its world premiere, Trestle tenderly but truthfully explores love and ageing, asking how we choose to live in the face of soaring life expectancies. It won the 2017 Papatango New Writing Prize from over 1000 entries, following in the footsteps of previous Prize-winners who have gone on to win BAFTAs and OffWestEnd Awards and premiere worldwide.

Trestle follows 2016 Papatango Prize winner Orca and 2015 winner Tomcat, both OffWestEnd Award-nominated, in making its world premiere at Southwark Playhouse

About Trestle:

Harry feels like life is beginning to tick down, his autumn years spent quietly caring for the community he loves. Denise thinks life begins in retirement and she’s dancing like she’s still at high school. When their paths cross at the village hall, their understanding of the time they have left changes irrevocably. What do community, growing old, and falling in love really mean? And who gets to decide anyway?
