Playography is currently undergoing an essential rebuild, technical update and maintenance. All updates are on hold until the rebuild is complete. We are continuing to work hard in the background and are still accepting submissions which will be complete in Autumn 2023. For more information visit ITI's website.

Tales from Briar Hall


  • Playwright

    Katie McCann 

  • Synopsis

    Edward is not the type of boy that you would notice. Bullied his entire life, he retreats into the isolation of the woods beside his house, content to be left alone with the animals that inhabit it... but when he stumbles into the depths of Briar Hall one night, his presence is felt all too strongly by Daisy, the surreptitious inhabitant of the house. Daisy knows that this is destiny, that he is the one she has been waiting for and now that she has him, she has no intention of letting him go. If walls could talk, you might not want to hear what Briar Hall has to say...
