Kath Mattock hosts our next play reading group. We will explore the play The End of Eddywhich was previously an award-winning stage production.

We’ll send you a copy of the play to read before the session. Don’t worry if you don’t have time to read it beforehand, as we will read sections of the play aloud together over Zoom, explore ideas and characters in the play, and have a chat about it together.

Thanks to Unicorn Theatre and Pamela Carter for use of the script.

About the play

A coming-of-age play about growing up gay in a working-class town in France. It’s a sensitive, universal story of boyhood and sexual awakening. We witness Eddy’s struggle to understand who he is, who he might become, and his fight to escape.

The play reflects on issues around sexuality, class, and power, and is filled with hope, lust, love, and anger.

Contains explicit sexual references and frequent use of strong language.
