Overview

“She’s been coming here every Sunday for the past fifty years and he still hasn’t turned up.”

In response to Noel Coward's Tonight at 8.30, Jermyn Street Theatre has commissioned three new plays from female writers.

Morna Young's Smite is inspired by The Astonished Heart. It is a story of buried answers, blind hearts, and life after loss. Emma Harding's The Thing Itself reacts to Shadow Play. What emerges from the shadows? Truth or illusion? Jenny Ayres' Glimpse is inspired by Still Life. In a world that never stops, are we brave enough to wait? What might we glimpse if we miss the train?

Jenny Ayres studied at The Central School of Speech and Drama before being invited onto the Royal Court Young Writers Programme in 2005.

Emma Harding is originally from Birmingham and works as a BBC radio drama producer.

Morna Young is a playwright, actress and musician from Scotland. She was recipient of the 2017 Dr Gavin Wallace Fellowship (hosted by Creative Learning, Aberdeen City Council) and the New Playwrights Award 2014 (Playwrights Studio, Scotland).

Stella Powell-Jones is Deputy Director of Jermyn Street Theatre.
