A young female soldier returns from Afghanistan to a home she no longer recognises or connects with. She has proved herself in combat but her hardest battle is yet to come, as she navigates family politics, old relationships, and the memory of betrayal.
From the deserts of a modern war to the battleground of a family kitchen, Morgan Lloyd Malcolm's explosive new play delves into one woman's quest for identity and a place she can call home.
Morgan Lloyd Malcolm’s recent writing includes Dick Whittington and his cat with Joel Horwood (Lyric Hammersmith), Platform with Duncan Macmillan (Old Vic Tunnels) and suddenlossofdignity.com with Zawe Ashton, James Graham, Joel Horwood Malcolm and Michelle Terry (Bush Theatre). Her play Eveline's Circle was performed as part of Hampstead Theatre’s Start Night series in 2005.
This production contains themes of an adult nature.
Belongings was developed with the support of the National Theatre Studio.
