Description - Fair/Felt Effects by Joy Wilkinson
Fair is the story of love and hate, inspired by events in Burnley and Oldham (north of Manchester) where the British Nationalist Party has gained a foothold. A year after the race riots, a festival designed to unite the community serves only to entrench the divisions. When young lovers Railton and Melanie discover each other's politics, their relationship implodes. Felt Effects is Joy Wilkinson's first play. It explores the seismic relationship between two half-sisters and their mother when they are forced together in the A&E ward of the local hospital. Tremors happen around us everyday and are so weak they are classified as `Not Felt' but the effects of the earthquake now erupting under this family's feet are impossible to ignore...
