Werthers & Wrinkles - 2015

A stunning piece of original student writing, associated with Castle Theatre Company as part of the 40th annual Durham Drama Festival, 'Werthers & Wrinkles' was undoubtedly an audience favourite. In this play, we see the exploration of the relationship between grandparents and grandchildren, portrayed sensitively using both pathos and humour. DST First Night reported that 'it is a rare thing for new writing to elicit any sort of emotional response, but 'Werthers & Wrinkles' is an exception'. CTC Artistic Director Kate Barton's work was described as 'excellent' and her casting 'inspired', whilst it was finally stated that 'if you missed this, you missed out'.
