Clive Judd’s award-winning debut play about a family's search for meaning.
A family packs into a small house with a knotty history. Matt wants to regain someone he’s lost. His cousin Jess wants to feel something ... anything. And Aunt Monica and Jeff are here, just about. Together, ferocious and funny, they laugh, fight & remember together.
On this fateful night, the four of them will finally confront the old decisions that haunt them. How does a family make a future, when everything that holds it together lies in the past?
"The script needs sharpening, and the climactic vision granted to Matt is a leap too far. Yet, partly because the acting is so deft, you’re left intrigued about what Judd will come up with next."
" 'Here' is an overall enjoyable watch, albeit a slightly inconsistent one. It is full of moments of brilliance, with some truly great writing and characters you find yourself completely invested in."
"The play takes too long to reach climaxes that don’t quite satisfy, but it is fascinating, flitting between ideas, conventions and genres and, in the process, becoming something unsettling and rather beautiful."
