Masterclass presents Pitch Your Play 2021: A series of staged readings
Two Flats on Clifton Street
Written by Faebian Averies.
Directed by Steve Bennett. Produced by Tom Bevan
Set in the Splott district of Cardiff, a typically run-down part of the city, we follow Eira, a care leaver, as she attempts to take her first steps into adulthood guided by her very limited skillset. Secretly watching her navigate this new life, is Agnes, the elderly lady who lives downstairs. Agnes, uncertain of Eira’s reaction, tentatively works towards reaching out. Eira’s intrigue grows as she becomes aware of the elderly woman’s presence.
Inspired by working as support staff in a children’s care home, the play addresses issues faced by care leavers and shines a light on loneliness at either end of the age divide.
