A Play With Many Layers (And Many Lives)


Developed with The Royal Court Northern Writers Programme in partnership with Northern Stage, Newcastle.

A one act play, set in real time, out on the sands of Morecambe Bay.

A mother and her teenage daughter struggle to deal with their loss while confronting long buried secrets.  A play about heritage and identity, Bones explores how it feels to be a migrant and the emotional impact on the generations that follow. 


On 10th October 2018 there was a one off, script in hand performance of Bones in Ulverston in aid of Furness Refugee Support.  Ceri Hutton and Mathilda Kenny played mother and daughter.  The performance was followed by a lively discussion.


In 2020 Bones was commisioned by BBC Radio 4 as part of the Cumbria wide Contains Strong Language Festival.  It was recorded and edited during lockdown. 



Marie (the mother): Daniela Denby-Ashe 

Katherine (the daughter): Miranda Dobson. 


Local sound effects were recorded by Jennie Dennettt on Morecambe Bay and the play was produced by Nadia Molinari in Manchester. 


Local artist, Hannah Fox, has been commissioned to create a site specific piece to accompany the Radio Cumbria preview the day before the national broadcast.  A limited audience will be invited to join a drive-in event.  Details will be released shortly.
