Written by Joe White
The Mayfly hatches in the morning, mates in the afternoon, dies at night: a lot can happen in a day.
A family searches for new beginnings:
Ben thinks they might be better off without him, but his wife Cat has read her stars: ‘Today a very special person will appear from out the blue’.
Their daughter Loops is getting ready for a date. It’s her first one, and she has everything crossed.
People think that cos you’re from a small village, everyone will know you. But we can still go missing. Even out here.
An ethereal family drama, Joe White’s debut play Mayfly explores rebirth in the aftermath of tragedy.
