Twelve Miles From Nowhere

Twelve Miles From Nowhere

my dad had this farm, passed down from his dad and it'll stay in this family. No way they're getting their greasy hands on it.' Since Michael and Emily's mother left, time has stood still. Their father James is struggling and can't see a way forward. The farm is in a bad way and going under. . .Then Craig arrives with enough charisma and ambition to charm the birds from the trees. But is he really the answer to their dreams? Set on a remote northern farm, Twelve Miles from Nowhere is a moving and compelling account of what happens when a vulnerable, isolated family let an engaging young stranger into their lives. Merging the dreams and aspirations found in Steinbeck's Of Mice and Men with the northern edge and humour of Barry Hines' Kes, this stunning new play about life on the edge is set against an unexpectedly gritty rural backdrop.

written by Kevin Dyer, Sarah Calver, Freddie Machin, Doug Crossley and Ben Worth
