Tiny Dynamite
by Abi Morgan

August-November 2001

so perfectly formed that it succeeds in making a much bigger splash than you might expect


“A rogue fork of lightening caught him hard across the chest.

In years to come it was said the boy possessed magic powers.

In the darkest hour rumour had it that he shone”


An impossible love story, Tiny Dynamite tells of two childhood friends with a shared past that comes back to haunt them. When they rebuild their friendship one summer in later life, a chance encounter - an electrifying and ghostly reminder of their past - gives them both an opportunity to replay past decisions and change the course of their future.


Which choice will they make this time – and at what cost?
