Bubblewrap

Mon, 23 April, 2018 — Sat, 28 April, 2018

By Hilary Lyon

It’s one of the 10 most stressful things we do apparently and we do it on average 7 times in a lifetime, but moving home is not just about packing and unpacking your stuff… Whilst wading through the contents of seemingly endless boxes, Kirsty and Alex unwittingly start to unwrap their lives. Can they withstand the emotional unpacking; what’s the story with the hovering removal man… and what is lurking in that box marked ‘Pandora’?

Presented in association with Traverse Theatre.

Bubblewrap is Hilary’s 2nd play as a writer for Oran Mor, having both written and acted in Ding Dong (A bit of Farce) last Spring. Other productions as both writer and actor include 12 episodes of Secrets and Lattes and 24 episodes of Baggage for BBC Radio 4.

Hilary’s acting credits include productions with The National Theatre, Traverse, Donmar Warehouse, English Touring Theatre, Lyric Hammersmith and Citizens’ Theatre. TV appearances include Casualty, Monarch of the Glen, Chef, Dangerfield, Taggart, Dr Finlay, Love or Money and Jonathan Creek. Hilary has previously performed at Oran Mor in Billy (The Days of Howling) and Behind the Barricade.
