The Winterling

by Jez Butterworth

directed by Steven O’Shea


“You fall asleep out here, something creeps up and eats you”.

In a dilapidated farmhouse on rural Dartmoor, in the depths of winter, West, a gangland fugitive, awaits the arrival of two old associates he has summoned from London to deal with some unfinished business. There is only room in the car for two people to leave. Meanwhile someone sits waiting upstairs.

Multi award winning playwright Jez Butterworth, author of such modern classics as ‘Mojo’, ‘Jerusalem’ and ‘The Ferryman’, deploys his trademark pump-action dialogue as the characters’ power plays become increasingly desperate and deadly.
