The multi-award-winning Finborough Theatre’s Spring Season ends with the world premiere of a new play, Schism by Athena Stevens, which opens for a three week limited season on Wednesday, 27 April 2016.

Failed architect Harrison has plans to make tonight the last night of his life. What he doesn't need is Katherine, a young student with cerebral palsy , breaking into his house in her wheelchair begging for his help...

As their chaotic first encounter turns into the beginning of a twenty year relationship, the unlikely couple grow to realise that they are capable of either building something great together – or absolutely destroying each other.

Written and co-performed by acclaimed playwright with a disability Athena Stevens, Schism is the world premiere of a stunning new play about two people finding each other, and what happens when their dream becomes unrealistic and out of date.


We have a pair of tickets to give away to see Schism, follow us on Twitter and RT the relevant post. Competition closes 25th April 2016 – please note there is no wheelchair access at the Finborough Theatre.

Schism runs at the Finborough Theatre, London from 27 April 2016.
