A play about anxiety and supernovas

Bran flakes, anxiety and gravity. The smallest moments in history. The largest events in the universe. Blink and you’ll miss it. A scribble in the chest.


Based on experiences both real and imagined, Scribble is an exploration of the complexity of obsession and compulsion and supermarkets, performed by one actor who has seen the script and one actor who hasn't.



Assembly Roxy Theatre Award, 2017.


"Heartbreaking, furious play looking at mental illness" The List, Lorna Irvine


"I've found it a curiously hard work to forget, perhaps because the ideas floating underneath it are compelling" - Exeunt Magazine, Rosemary Waugh
