4 July 2012
Vera Vera Vera, a new play by Hayley Squires, produced at the Royal Court Theatre as part of its Young Writers Festival opens at the Bussey Building in Peckham.
Squires is an actor, recently graduating from Rose Bruford Drama School. Vera Vera Vera is her first play and was her first submission to the Royal Court. The fresh young cast of new talent include Danielle Flett, Daniel Kendrick, Tommy McDonnell, Abby Rakic-Platt and Ted Reilly.
The boy who comes back from a war far away in a wooden box is glorified and called a hero. As the funeral plans are made in a small Kent town, his siblings squabble over who he was.
Vera Vera Vera is a blackly comic play about what we are willing to fight for, looking at violence, neglect and apathy.
