A Quiet Life


  • Playwright

    Nicholas Kelly 

  • Notes

    A Quiet Life was originally presented as a companion piece to 'Shapeshifters' by the same author (listed separately) under the title 'Ways2me'.

  • Synopsis

    Gary is a bit young, a bit wild, he knows how the world is, at least he thinks he does. Then a trip to the cinema and a ride in a stolen car bring him to a place he never knew existed, somewhere that he can be himself, a place of sanctuary. Only sometimes your life won't let you be who you want to be, no matter how quiet you are.
