Stop Pretending

Coming to Manchester and Edinburgh in 2021

Written by Mark Griffiths

It’s 1964 and brilliant young writer Dennis Potter (future author of Pennies From Heaven and The Singing Detective) becomes entangled in the life of a troubled young woman when they meet in the waiting room of a London hospital.

Both possess terrible secrets. And both must face their terrifying consequences.

This dark new play is both a tribute to the genius of much-loved playwright Dennis Potter and a testament to the remarkable power of the human imagination.
