A World Premiere. Written by Chris Dunkley

A HighTide Festival Theatre and Nuffield Theatre, Southampton Production


Smallholding. Big Problem.

"She's got no business being a junkie… She had looks, brains... Everythin' goin' for her. Whereas you, Andy… You deserve addiction."

Andy and Jen have just moved on to a new farm, returning to the village they grew up in. The plan is to plant parsnips, breed pigs and live off the fat of the land. But escaping their shared demons was never going to be easy.

While the couple try to make a fresh start, trust, responsibility and bio-dynamic farming challenge their rehabilitation in this darkly comic love story.

Hope and optimism are tested in Smallholding, a fizzing new play by Chris Dunkley, directed by Patrick Sandford, award-winning director and artistic director of The Nuffield Theatre Southampton.

Running Time approximately 80 minutes without an interval.

Smallholding premieres at the Nuffield Theatre, Southampton, 24th April – 4th May 2013, before transferring to HighTide Festival 2013.
