Katherine Chandler’s new play A Pretty Sh*tty Love opens at Theatr Clwyd

The latest play from award-winning writer Katherine Chandler comes to Theatr Clwyd in Wales.

Inspired by true events that took place in Wales, the story follows a woman who was buried alive by her abusive partner. The play holds themes about dreaming of love, living in fear, and finding the strength to pull yourself out.

Katherine is twice a finalist for the prestigious Susan Smith Blackburn prize with her plays Before it Rains and Parallel Lines.

A Pretty Sh*tty Love opens on Friday 8th July and will be performed throughout the month, with a short run at Chapter Arts Centre Cardiff until Friday 29th July.
