‘This is my life. I want to do more with it than flip burgers.’
Thatcher’s England, and Luke and Andy are facing the end of their childhoods. Luke is the first in the family to go to university; but as Andy looks for a way of escaping the life he was born into, he can’t stop thinking about his father.
Surrounded by mixtapes, guitars and ambitions, the two brothers discover how easy it is to get lost in a country that doesn’t look after its own.
Up In Arms are delighted to present Barney Norris’s second play, having toured his debut At First Sight in 2011. Alice Hamilton returns to direct.
Missing played at the Tristan Bates Theatre from January 31st – February 25th 2012 at 7.30pm, and 4pm on Sundays. To book tickets, visit www.tristanbatestheatre.co.uk.
