The only two children born in a Yorkshire village for a generation cannot imagine ever being apart, but as their lives shift, so too do the ties that bind them. Charley Miles’ outstanding debut play Blackthorn explores the changes and choices that pull us from the places and people we love.

Blackthorn was a finalist for the prestigious Susan Smith Blackburn prize in 2017 and is presented by InSite Performance in association with West Yorkshire Playhouse.
