An epic tale of England’s lost land.
Mary’s the best liar, rogue, thief and faker in this whole septic isle. And now she’s back.
As the factory smoke of the industrial revolution belches out from the cities, Mary is swept up in the battle for her former home. The common land, belonging to all, is disappearing.
DC Moore’s dark and funny new play is an epic tale of unsavoury action and England’s lost land.
Headlong’s Artistic Director, Jeremy Herrin (People, Places and Things, This House) directs Anne-Marie Duff as Mary and Cush Jumbo as Laura.
Please note: Common contains strong language from the start and scenes of a violent nature.
