Shepherd

Date: 14 Jan 2020

The world’s on fire. Everything’s melting.

And you can get chicken nuggets delivered to your door at 3am. What if there was a place where you could let go of all your modern day guilt and anxiety?

Kate’s gone there to find happiness.

Nick, her ex boyfriend, has followed her there because he lost his happiness when she left to find hers.

Lewis has a bag over his head because he thinks he’s ugly and that makes him unhappy.

Elsa will only be happy when she finds the fame she’s destined for.

Mark never says anything but he looks happy enough.

And Anna’s promising a world of happiness but doesn’t seem to have any idea what that looks like…

Written by Liam McGuire, Shepherd is an absurd play for absurd times. Rose Riley, Jacob Warner, Cecelia Peters, Mark Paguio, Grace Victoria and Adam Sollis feature.
