One man, four phones and thirty six calls. As Martin’s carefully constructed lives – as husband, father, son, lover, client, employee and patient – spiral out of control he must decide where his priorities lie and how he can even begin to atone for his mistakes.
BAFTA Winner Jeremy Brock returns to Hampstead Downstairs with a gripping, evocative glimpse into the rapid unravelling of one man’s world from which he has no escape. Brock was last at Hampstead Downstairs with The Blackest Black in 2014. The Blackest Black and 36 Phone Calls are his first plays in over 20 years, after scripting many critically acclaimed films including Mrs Brown, The Last King of Scotland and How I Live Now.
