Gas Station Angel

Bloomsbury Publishing
Type: Text

Bron meets Ace six days after his house falls into the sea. Their families may share a past of fairies, angels, axe-murderers and chickens, but what do Bron and Ace need with the past when they've got imagination and a tinted-glass, blue Marina 1800 TC ready to drive into the heart of Saturday night?

Set in a shrinking land Gas Station Angel premiered at Newcastle Playhouse in May 1998 in a tour by Fiction Factory, prior to its first performance, directed by the playwright, at The Royal Court Theatre Upstairs, London, in June 1998.
