A word from the writer: Tom Wells

We’re really excited that Broken Biscuits, a Live Theatre and Paines Plough production, has its world premiere with us next week. On from Wednesday 5 to Saturday 22 October, Broken Biscuits is a hilarious and heart warming story with songs. Here’s what the play’s writer Tom Wells had to say about the show:

“Broken Biscuits is a play about three teenagers figuring out how to be a band. They practise in a garden shed in Hull on Friday nights all through the summer after they’ve finished their GCSEs. They write their own songs, and try to be cool, and try to grow up a bit. None of it goes that well. But rehearsing it has been a real treat. The actors are properly funny, and soulful, and have just become a band somehow. Matthew’s songs are stunning, Lily’s shed feels like the sort of shed you can dream big dreams in, and as more props turn up – guitars, boxes of biscuits, Tickle-Me-Elmos – the rehearsal room gets a bit messier and scruffier and a bit more full of life. I’m really looking forward to opening the show at Live Theatre.”

On Saturday 8 October (after the 2pm show) join the cast and creative team behind the show for a free Meet the Team event where they’ll discuss the making of the play and answer your questions about the show. Find out more.
