Wish List

Katherine Soper

"I dreamt about this last night. I dreamt that I was packing boxes in boxes in boxes."

Dean is housebound, compelled by his severe obsessive compulsive disorder to repeat meticulous rituals and meet self-set targets. His sister Tamsin has her own near-impossible quotas to meet: working on a zero-hour contract in a warehouse, packing boxes for hours on end to provide for them both. When Dean is wrongly declared fit for work, the pressure increases as their benefits are cut. For both of them, the demands put on them to keep their heads above water go from being almost unreachable to completely out of sight.

Described as "a quietly essential and moving play", Katherine Soper's Wist List asks how people are meant to respect a system when it seems to be set against them, and reveals the strength and prevalence of love in the face of adversity.
