Theatre N16, March 2018
In Debris, Dennis Kelly finds humour and pathos in a spectacularly dysfunctional family unit. The play’s analysis of struggling young people has acquired a new, profound relevance against the backdrop of a polarized, screen-obsessed nation veering towards right-wing politics.
From the writer who brought us Matilda the Musical, DNA and Utopia, we invite you to come and revisit the dark world where Dennis Kelly’s unique talent was first discovered in an ambitious revival that’s more powerful now than ever.
