When your child is born, the world changes before your eyes. You learn to know yourself anew: as both parent and child, resilient and fragile, powerful and flawed. It's this context that frames Solomon’s World - Jake Wild Hall’s compassionate and acutely honest debut.
Hall invites you in for a cup of tea, then opens a door to the edge of the world, via prisons and pixie godmothers, giants and fireworks, AT-AT walkers, hospital wards. Against a backdrop of addiction and loss, moments of brittle beauty and unconditional love prevail, represented by a rich cast of both literal and honorary family. This is a voice reaching out to bridge gaps, pulling you in from the cold.
