Lent Week 5
Charlie has spent his entire life followed by bad luck. He misses his trains, spills all his drinks, and somehow, every single time he goes into a park, he comes out of it with bird poo in his hair. It’s a part of his life that’s become all too easy to get used to, laugh at – and to blame things on when they go wrong.
But things change when, in the space of the same two weeks, he’s dumped and his childhood best friend dies in a freak car accident. Suddenly his unlucky life from before looks like a walk in the park. Lonely, untethered, and desperately missing his past, he attempts to reconnect it the only way he knows how – through his ex-girlfriend, Alex.
Part comedy, part drama, this piece of new writing explores, with tenderness and wit, grief, intimacy, and what it means to be vulnerable.
