It’s not about being polished or perfect, it’s the message. The messier looking the better.


One-act play, presented script-in-hand at Roughly Staged, March 2024.

When Ailidh and Wren attend a placard painting session for a protest, they recount key moments of their relationship, from the sweetness of meeting to the jagged edge of prejudice. Through this, they’ll discover if they’re going to end up on the same page when it’s time to take a stand.

Performed at Cottiers, Glasgow, March 2024.
