  • A woman awaits her son’s return from a night out. Then at 3am, there’s a knock on her door. It’s the police, and everything changes. She hears what he’s done, she reads his confession, she really sees him for the first time, what does she do? What can she do?
  • Winner of the IYAF BEST OF BRIGHTON FRINGE THEATRE AWARD 2017 and featured in the Scotsman's Top Rated Shows at the Edinburgh Festivals 2016, Mine is a harrowing examination of what a parent must overcome when their child is arrested for something truly unspeakable. A moving play about shame, courage, guilt and good parenting.

  • What drives us to violence? She explores how the experiences in the life of a woman with dark potential drive her to murder. ‘A restaurant. There are four tables and She sits at three of them, the main course is set. Different stories, different perspectives, all leading to this one moment; a simple action with violent consequences. She explores what drives us to violence when a woman with dark potential is pushed too far. Analytical detail and creative imagery bring the inner workings of one individual sharply into focus.’  Hannah Torrance is one of five UK writers selected for the 2016-17 Write To Play programme run by Graeae Theatre Company offering training to disabled writers with exciting potential.
