Fri, 29th – Sat, 30th September – Wreck – Nottingham Playhouse

Nottingham Playhouse is one of our favourite venues in the city. You can usually spot a Simplifier there most weeks. Last week we watched Sara Pascoe’s adaptation of Pride and Prejudice, this week we’re going to see Wreck – a fast paced, emotionally raw thriller.

We’ve been told to expect and edge of your seat, fast paced drama. An easy-going Nottingham lad boards a train, fresh from visiting his girlfriend. His world is flipped upside down when the train never completes its journey…
