This is Sam. Young, impulsive, single mum. Londoner born and bred and never ever left. Sam makes her mistakes, but who can blame her?

Tom rents the flat above, the one Sam cleans. If they can come to ‘an arrangement’ he won’t call the Social on her.

You might think Tom is a monster. You might think Sam’s kids would be better off without her. Someone needs to make a decision.

Shortlisted for the Verity Bargate Award and winner of the Soho Theatre Young Writer’s Award, Fury is a chilling and powerful modern Medea about motherhood and class, taking an unapologetic look at the single young mum, the one already judged before she’s even opened her mouth.

Phoebe Eclair-Powell (Wink, 503) is resident writer at Soho Theatre. Directed by Hannah Hauer-King, co-founder of Damsel Productions and director of the 2015 hit Dry Land (Jermyn Street Theatre)
