Selected as one of 'The most beautiful books in the land' by Time Out Shad Thames, Broken Wharf is a play of voices that spans centuries of changes across the Docklands, allowing past ghosts to be heard above the white noise of the polemical present. Set in a pub that has stood on the site since the sixteenth century, we eavesdrop on a conversation between three characters - Echo, a middle-aged woman who has lived her life in the area; Blaise, a northerner who finds resonances with the more familiar docks at Liverpool; and the gregarious landlord, a Londoner with 'the knowledge'. Breaking into the dialogue, The Restructure is a sinister, all-knowing Public Service Announcement with 'advice' to share with anyone who'll listen - Commissioned by London Word Festival and first performed March 2010. Shad Thames, Broken Wharf is published as a boxed, limited edition mini-book. Each copy is signed, numbered and hand-printed, and contains a unique object (or objects) mudlarked from the shore of the Thames.
