The award winning Queer love-story returns to London.

A Harlow Playhouse Original
Written by Tom Ratcliffe & directed by Rikki Beadle-Blair

‘I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you.’

Sam and his fiancé Noel have been together for years. They have a house, a cat and their whole lives ahead of them. But when a sudden and permanent distance crashes into their relationship, it falls upon Sam to discover where their story goes from here.

Harlow Playhouse presents this award-winning, internationally acclaimed work by Tom Ratcliffe. Wreckage is a touching story about continuing bonds and love that only evolves, and never dies.

Winner of Lustram Award (Ed Fringe 2022).

Shortlisted for the Theaterpreis Hamburg 2024.
