|Synopsis||Winner of the 2007 Oxford Writers/Oxford Playhouse New Writing Competition.
‘The Attic’ explores the lives of two women living in an old attic, hidden away from the outside world. Outside, troops roam the war-torn streets trying to round up undesirables to be taken away to camps where they will disappear forever. As the bombs fall around them the two women attempt to maintain normality when their safety is shattered by the sudden arrival of an airman, shot down during a bombing raid and on the run. Tension mounts as the troops outside begin to close in on their prey, threatening the future of everyone. We then discover this is not 1940s Germany, but in fact the US in the near future and the women are Muslims hiding from the state police.
