The Victorian in the Wall

Faber and Faber
Type: Text

Latte-land: Power-prams, Grand Design knock-throughs, organic everything.

A work-shy writer discovers a Victorian man living in the wall of his flat. Everyone's pretty surprised. Adjustments need to be made. Can the strange visitor unlock his hopeless career? His flagging relationship? A story buried in these walls for over a century? (Doubt it. Maybe. Yes.)

The Victorian in the Wall premiered at the Royal Court Theatre, London, in May 2013.
