A completely made-up true story

Presented by SDJ Productions, commissioned by BBC, co-produced by Theatre Royal Plymouth

When the world goes mad, do we inevitably go mad too?

CRACKING is a dark and comic story that blends fiction and reality into one seamless whole.

Shôn’s 83-year old mother is waiting for some test results from the hospital. Shôn goes back home to the Isle of Anglesey to visit her. To relieve some pressure, she asks him to crack an egg on her head. All hell is let loose. Internet trolls appear in real life demanding Shôn stops abusing his mother and gets off the island…

This story about love and hatred celebrates how searching for connection beats disconnecting.

CRACKING is a heart-warming and uplifting comic story about loving in the face of hatred
