Mercy needs a beautiful, expensive pink dress to bury her daughter in.
With no time to grieve, she scrapes together a sum of money. But in a world of revolution and ruin, how should she spend it? On a proper funeral for her daughter, or on food for her own survival?
Originally commissioned by the Sheffield Theatres’ New Writers’ Programme, this piece is a collaboration between Mufaro Makubika (BBC Writers’ Room), Linbury Prize winning designer, Grace Smart, and former Crucible Resident Director, Peter Bradley.
Here Lie The Remains of MERCY is a work-in-progress production, generously supported by Arts Council England, The Hospital Club and Theatre Delicatessen.
