Synopsis

Black Comedy Play Script: 'Full Circle' by Janet ShawA comedy drama that explores a family’s current relationship problems that have resulted from a single decision taken forty-four years earlier. If only words had been spoken, if only feelings had been explored, if only questions had been asked sooner, would circumstances have been different; and would broken hearts have been mended earlier?

Dee and Millie haven’t spoken since 1969 and no one knows why. That’s how it would have stayed until fate took a hand when Brian and Linda, their respective children, met and married. Now they tolerate each other on social occasions but avoid each other whenever possible.

It is the week of their only granddaughter’s wedding and it is physically impossible to dodge the inevitable confrontations. No one knows what happened forty-four years ago and Brian and Linda are fed up of the innuendos, sarcasm and downright awkwardness of the situation.

Linda is planning Nicola’s wedding with military precision, much to Brian’s horror when he finds out just what has been planned for the big day. However, the best laid plans can go wrong, and as the wedding plans unravel, so do the lives of the entire family.

No one is talking, and when next door neighbour Wills starts to delve into what happened in 1969, skeletons tumble out of the cupboards at an alarming rate. A spiral of destruction ensues, leaving the family with a past that can only lead to heartbreak, and the resurrection of a day that both Dee and Millie hoped had been buried long ago.
