'Stitching' is one of the most
controversial and discussed plays of recent years.
In the light of a pregnancy, a
faithless couple pick apart their relationship, stitch by painful stitch. Can it be mended? Anthony Neilson's dark and intimate new play is a love story set at the extremes of
brutality, banality and tenderness.
'Stitching' opened at the
Traverse Theatre, Edinburgh, on 2 August 2002 and transferred to the Bush Theatre, London on 12 September 2002.
'Explodes with power,
discipline, integrity and sheer cruel psychological accuracy...Neilson's writing has a terrible beauty' - Sunday Times.
'Startlingly rich and
challenging, Neilson depicts with aching precision a relationship in which love is undermined by distrust' - Time Out.
'A characteristically brave
and brutal offering' - Independent.
