Muswell Hill playwright explores how ambition and family life collide
Dan Davies’ play, previously on Radio 4, will show at this year’s Camden Fringe
A Muswell Hill playwright will stage his work at the Camden Fringe after it aired on BBC Radio 4 earlier this year.
Is Anything Broken? is a comedy drama by Dan Davies about the pressures of modern working life.
Ambitious architect Patrick is about to catch a flight to present a career-defining project when his son has an accident at school. He has a choice to make: go to him or get on the plane? There is 50 minutes before his flight to decide – during which time his entire life disintegrates as he’s forced to manipulate everyone around him to facilitate his decision.
Davies’ first play The Albatross was optioned by the Nicolas Kent for the Tricycle Theatre and given a reading at the National Theatre Studio.
