    relationship between a student and staff member; bullying by an academic

    Who are The Landsmen? Working-class heroes or satirical figures of fun?

    Haz is a young research student who thinks he has uncovered some uncomfortable truths about Graydon Brookfield, the author of a 1920s novel about a workers’ commune that has a cult following. But David, an eminent expert in the field, seemingly isn’t ready to entertain new perspectives on the matter.

    Ruth is close to Emma, her supervisor, but wants to ditch the study of literature altogether. Can they renegotiate the terms of their relationship without straying into ethical trouble and without alienating themselves from their peers?

    A play about idealism, power dynamics, bruising compromises – and a mysterious fiction-within-a-fiction about a secret society of brooding, violent rebels.
