The Shadow of a Boy: premiered at the Royal National Theatre in June 2002; joint winner of the George Devine award and winner of the Meyer Whitworth Award. The scheduled destruction of Earth alarms eleven-year-old Luke almost as much as starting at the comp. The Drowned World: premiered at the Traverse Theatre, Edinburgh, August 2002; won a Fringe First at the Edinburgh Festival and was joint winner of the 2003 Pearson Best Play Award. A vicious tale of love, revolt and beauty in a world where surfaces matter more than love and kinship. Cancer Time: a new work that premiers at the Latchmere Theatre, London, September 2004. A small city, a long way from the action. Two girls are killing time in a call centre. They are waiting for their lives to start. For something to happen. For a piece of the action to come to them. Today, they are going to get their wish. Fags: a brand new short work, regarded as a companion piece to Cancer Time.The volume is introduced by Vicky Featherstone of Paines Plough, and the new first director of Scotland's National Theatre.
