Dennis Kelly

Content warning [May contain spoilers]

Dennis Kelly's debut play enters into the insane world of siblings Michael and Michelle. The play follows their dysfunctional relationships with their family, themselves and each other. Michelle can't make sense of how their Mum died whilst Michael finds a baby he names 'Debris' in a dumpster. As they both try to navigate and make sense of their troubled past, the stories and events build to a shocking crescendo in the death of their father. Painful, emotional and disturbing, 'Debris' offers a dark view of the world through the eyes of Michelle and Michael that won't be easily forgotten.
