A tense relationship drama which examines how the effects of one moment can ripple through a galaxy of lives.
An ordinary summer's day. Liam is about to make a decision he will spend a lifetime regretting. One day. One mistake. Seven futures sent spiralling.
From service stations to sea fronts, Blister explores the limits of forgiveness and the tragic permanence of trauma.
Blister was first performed at Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama, in collaboration with Paines Plough, before performances at the Gate Theatre, London.
Multiplay Drama is an exciting new series of large-cast plays, specifically written to be performed by and appeal to older teenagers and young adults.
