by Alistair McDowall

Talk Show Top / Details
Sam runs a daily talk show from his basement bedroom. Upstairs his Dad and Grandad barely speak, but keep in touch through a baby monitor. With the return of Sam's wayward uncle can this peculiar form of domestic harmony stay uninterrupted? A black comedy about talking and transmission. Alistair McDowall grew up in the North East of England. He was a member of the Young Writers Programme and his play Brilliant Adventures was performed as a reading as part of the Young Writers festival in 2012, and was produced at Manchester Royal Exchange. His other credits include Captain Amazing (Live Theatre Newcastle).
