Grieving Time, as part of our Long Story Short Season, is a play about a man struggling to process his grief over the death of his wife five years previously, and his father at the beginning of the coronavirus lockdown.
As he walks through the park with his dog and meets people along the way he goes on an emotional journey of memories. He is pulled from the past into the present by the presence of his dog and casual encounters with other people. His grief is intense and vivid and his thoughts wander. As lockdown ends his emotional shifts show how lockdown time has affected his grieving time.
