Bindweed, written by Martha Loader

A Mercury Original in co-production with HighTide and New Wolsey Theatre, in association with the Royal Exchange Theatre.

Winner of the Judges Award at the Bruntwood Prize for Playwriting 2022.

The world premiere of an award-winning black comedy.

“Thursdays, curry night. Curry and a pint for a fiver. Go at five thirty, home by ten. Beat my mum up for a while. Bed by ten thirty.”

Four men convicted of domestic abuse offences meet each week to undergo a perpetrator programme. But as Jen, the new group facilitator, starts to make progress with the men inside the room, their lives outside begin to buckle.

Bindweed is a shattering and darkly funny new play about responsibility and rehabilitation, which looks at what can be done to tackle abuse at its root.

This show is recommended to those aged 18+, those aged between 16-18 may attend but will need to be accompanied by an adult.
