“Well, this is sociable…”
The Wyld sisters tend to avoid each other. Today they’re stuck on a train, en route to visit their brother for his birthday. In light of recent events, they’re determined to show a united front. But 250 miles into the journey, patience is wearing thin…
Empty Beds is Julia Cranney‘s funny, frank and touching new play about sisterhood and family crisis. Following an acclaimed run at the Edinburgh Fringe, where it won the Scottish Daily Mail Drama Award and the Eddie Award, it then transferred to the Arcola Theatre in London.
“★★★★ Superb acting … deftly captures the dynamics of sisterly relationships”
“★★★★ What really elevates this production, as it travels towards its gut punch of a destination, is its realistic rendering of the bundle of concern, guilt and frustration that mental illness drops like a ticking time bomb into people’s lives”
“★★★★ Captivating from the very beginning … an intense, emotional and hard-hitting piece”
