Overview

–So where you going? And isn't it a little past your bedtime?
–Coming from you?
–This ain't no open top tourist thing you know? It's the 11.

Circling the outskirts of Birmingham on the Number 11 bus, two teenagers develop an unlikely friendship. Meanwhile a mother observes her daughter's attempt to leave a violent relationship. Against the backdrop of a changing city everyone involved is forced to re-examine what they thought they knew about love, trust, family and friendship.

Rachel's De-lahay's vivid and powerful new play boldly explores cycles of violence and what it takes to break them, examining the effects of such violence on a generation of young women.

Circles received its world premiere at the Birmingham Rep on 9 May 2014.
