One Under - A note from the Director, Amit Sharma

We live in extraordinary times. The shock can stir emotions which have a lasting impact and people are changed, whether they want to be or not.

One Under is a play with an extraordinary and devastating event that puts into motion a need to understand, grieve and seek reconciliation. Winsome has written a play that deals with humanity at its most vulnerable and doesn't present easy answers as life is much more nuanced and complicated. To write something so raw is the mark of a special voice and Winsome as a person and in her work is truly special.

I'm delighted to be working again with Graeae and rekindling our partnership with Theatre Royal Plymouth. I'm equally excited by Ramps on the Moon and Leicester Curve's commitment in sharing diverse stories as well as the wonderful theatres who are presenting this work as part of their overall programming.

I hope the play holds some significance to you at the end as it does to me every time I read it. We are seeking purpose. Sometimes we can't find it. We need to hold each other otherwise all will be lost.
