If There Is I Haven’t Found It Yet is the story of Anna, an overweight child struggling to survive at school. Being the fat kid is hard enough, but when your Mum’s a teacher, it is hell. To make matter worse, her Dad is obsessed with saving the world and her maverick uncle Terry is dossing on the couch.
When Anna hits back at the bullies, she finds herself suspended from school and stuck at home with hapless Terry trying to save her. But he really needs saving, and as the bond between the two deepens, Anna finds herself swept up in a friendship she can’t live without.
If There Is I Haven’t Found It Yet is a new play by Nick Payne, who won the 2009 George Devine Award for Most Promising Playwright.
