A reclusive writer. A massive bestseller. A dark secret. What are you willing to forget? What are you willing to forgive? A reclusive children’s writer becomes wildly successful. Her books are treasured across the country. But when a troubling narrative starts to unfold, we find ourselves asking: what matters more, the storyteller or the story?
Heather is a short, sharp play about language, prejudice and the power of stories. Thomas Eccleshare is a writer, performer and theatre-maker, trained at the Jaques Lecoq School.
