Description

In Tyneside during WW2, the sadistic tendencies of a 12-year-old bully, Betty King, take a deadly turn when she and her naive cousin Peggy are evacuated from South Shields. Containing some strong language, An Evil Thing is a dark, contemporary one-act play. It was the Progressive Players' entry into the 2022 Durham and Sunderland One Act Festival. An Evil Thing won the Allan Monkhouse Award for Best New Play, awarded by GoDA adjudicator Robert Meadows. Running time approximately 50 minutes. Not suitable for children.
