A Bomb We Called Sam | Bristol Old Vic Studio


Trapped inside Newcastle’s beating heart, three teenagers are confronted by grief when their best friend dissapears off the cliffs of Tynemouth.

A shockwave of mistakes, love and anger ensues, motivating Morgan Milburn to construct a bomb and take revenge on the city she blames for her brother's death. A decade later, the teenagers are brought together to confront the ghosts of their hollowed past. A Bomb We Called Sam portrays the death of childhood, blending struggles of working class adolescence with the surreal and supernatural imagery of newcastle.

Presented as part of the New Writing Festival.
