Molly Davies's new play about wanting a better life plays as part of the Royal Court Young Writers Festival. Read More >

“There ent much use for reality out here, but I could tell you a few truths. I could sing you a song of welly boots and blood, knitting needles and caster oil. There will be pigs that scream, a girl who cannot feed herself, a miracle baby – and a flatness that consumes us.”

Take one baby and a mother who is not sure is she’s ready. Add a soldier returned from war and a grandmother holding the fort. Mix in a landscape of flatness and a pinch of violence in the countryside and maybe, just maybe, you’ll get a miracle.

Molly Davies’s play A Miracle is about wanting a better life.

A Miracle is staged as part of the Royal Court’s Young Writers’ Festival 2009, whose patron this year is Ruth Jones, co-creator of hit television series Gavin And Stacey.
