Synopsis
 
"Everyone turned round and stared like I'm from Mars or something."

Nine writers. Nine monologues. The heart of the countryside

When, in 2004, Trevor Phillips, then Chair of the Commission for Racial Equality, asked if there was a 'passive apartheid' in the countryside, Pentabus Theatre in association with BBC Radio Drama invited nine writers to the John Osborne Arvon Centre to investigate this.

Seven of the scripts, by Francesca Beard, Sonali Bhattacharyya, Ian Marchant, Kara Miller, Richard Rai O'Neill, Courttia Newland and Rommi Smith, form the play produced for the 2006 Edinburgh Festival season.

    “That’s what I think about the country – it’s a place where stuff goes on that you wouldn’t want to know about, stuff that’s hidden away in all this open space, these fields of earth and dark, dark nights with no sulphur glow and no neighbours around to hear. Mind you, it’s pretty.”
