The cost of living is higher than ever and the divide between rural and urban communities is stark. Heather, Holly and their mum Angela, a close-knit family from Devon struggle to run a rural petrol station. And when Holly finally returns home from the city, she discovers a shattered version of the village she left behind…

Kindle is a captivating piece of new writing exploring modern rural community, climate change, and the impacts of the ever rising cost of living.

The play began life as a 2019 seed commission from Theatre Royal Plymouth. Since, it has been supported by Exeter Northcott Theatre, before receiving a National Lottery Project Grant from Arts Council England. This grant will fund a studio and rural tour in 2023, as well as creative workshops, oral history collection, and the making of a short illustrated film.
