BOOK OF THE WEEK- Blackthorn by local writer Charley Miles. A play about the only two children born in a North Yorkshire village for a generation, who cannot imagine ever being apart; but as their lives shift, so too do the ties that bind them.
A contemporary, lyrical love story, Charley Miles’s play Blackthorn explores the changes and choices that pull us from the places and people we love.
First seen at Leeds Playhouse (formerly the West Yorkshire Playhouse) in 2016, the play was a finalist for the 2017 Susan Smith Blackburn Prize, and was revived at the 2018 Edinburgh Festival Fringe in a production by InSite in association with Leeds Playhouse.
