Playwright Tony Hickson is set to premiere his play Children of the cleaved forest at the Bread and Roses Theatre in Clapham London. The tale is a dark story set around a gang of schoolgirls, the story is based on the Conservative government and the old school network of bullies who demonize minorities and the working class. The play features four promising actresses ,in a time when it is difficult to get meaningful parts for women on the stage or screen this all girl cast is a force to be reckoned with. The play runs for three nights at the Bread and roses in Clapham 16th to 18th October 2016 as part of the spiral New writers event.
