Work in Development

Orbital Decay

Full-Length play, developed at Bristol Old Vic Theatre School

1985. East Germany. A disintegrating society begins its final era. As the feared State Security tightens its grip on the nation, the Satellite continues to plummet to Earth.

2020. In a reunified Germany, while the wallpaper has been changed, the cracks in the plaster underneath are deeper than ever.

Written during the 30th year of German reunification,

Orbital Decay is a play about barriers and walls, the deep-rooted effects of trauma and how a romanticized past can shape our present

Make them flip a coin.
And then watch the unthinkable happen.
Watch what happens.”
