STICKS AND STONES

Vinay Patel,

“So we're clear
You know, right?
You know I’m not that kind of person.”

Sometimes we can’t find the right words. Sometimes the wrong word just slips out. Sometimes the right words become the wrong words. Sometimes that ruins everything.

When a misfiring joke turns their life upside down, B starts to question what being good really means. In an age when technology multiplies every mistake, can we find a way to understand each other?

A razor sharp satire about the search for a sure footing in an uncertain world from BAFTA nominated Vinay Patel.

 

A Paines Plough and Theatr Clwyd production as part of the Roundabout season. 

#SticksAndStones

“This sharp-as-a-tack satire is brilliant at showing the pitfalls and pratfalls of using the wrong [word] at the wrong time.”

★★★★ The Times

"It’s a clever, witty assessment of how it’s hard to take things back once they’ve been spoken and the current battle between free speech and offense being played out in the media."

★★★★ The i

"This stellar cast keeps the pace fast and tension high, made easy with the tight script from BAFTA-nominated playwright Vinay Patel."
