In this touching and comic drama, Stephanie Jacob delves into the turmoil, love and compromises of kinship. Again resets the clock on one family’s history as Tom and Louise – now divorced – and their adult children, Adam and Izzy, negotiate what they think they know and tussle for what they think they want.
Moving, funny and instantly recognisable, Againwas first performed at Trafalgar Studios, London, in February 2018, in a production by Mongrel Thumb, and directed by Hannah Price.
"Bears many of the hallmarks of Caryl Churchill… it is constantly surprising and challenging, easily holding the attention and, like a page-turning novel, making viewers want to know what is going to happen next. It also gets deep into the psychology and personalities of each of the four individuals, every one of whom seems fully fleshed out, which is no mean feat… a really fine piece of writing.

"Filled with humour and beautiful writing, and [has] a clever structure that elevates it to something more than just a play about family… theatrical, inventive and good fun. " —LondonTheatre1
