- Apart From George
Play by Nick Ward.
It ain't right to take away a man's job when he's worked for you all his life...I don't know about your commercial necessity, but I do know that...
"George Sutton has forged a life tending and clearing the waterlogged Fenlands for a local landowner. When he loses his job, he searches in vain to find a purpose and a sense of self worth...
A dark, poetic exploration of the effects of unemployment on a family, drawing on a simple, beautiful storytelling style and using live music.
Apart From George opened at the Edinburgh Festival in 1987, and subsequently played at the Royal Court Theatre, on a national tour of the UK and in New York City. The original cast included the late Katrin Cartlidge, a regular collaborator of the writer-director. The play won Nick Ward the prestigious George Devine Award in 1988"
