Let’s Talk About Philip
A detective-like quest to understand a brother’s suicide
Suitable for Age 12 +
When 30 years of family silence is broken Helen begins a detective-like quest to discover the hidden story behind her brother’s suicide.
The journey takes her back to her childhood, exotic Asian locations, a coroner’s court and the place where her brother died. As surprising details are uncovered, Helen grapples with loyalty, long-held beliefs and how much we ever really know about those we love.
A fast-paced, candid, darkly comic and gripping play performed by Helen Wood and Gregor Hunt.
Directed by 2022 Olivier Award nominee Derek Bond (Dragons & Mythical Beasts; Jess & Joe Forever).
★★★★★ The Wee Review'This is a beautifully constructed, utterly engaging play, powered in equal amounts by Wood’s insightful candour and by Hunt’s flawless characterisation.. I’ll be talking about it for a long time to come.’
★★★★ Three Weeks 'A very peaceful and life affirming way to spend an hour.’
★★★★ London Theatre 1 'Strikes a perfect balance between grief and joy, and between love and anger.’
