About

WATCH ON-DEMAND 

It’s the run-up to Christmas at a Royal Mail sorting office in Bristol. It’s chaos, parcels pile up, get lost, arrive late or not at all. Temporary workers are recruited to cope with the increased volume, among them Alesha, a young woman in her twenties. Alesha’s manager is Auntie, an elderly Asian woman who has run the department for decades. Auntie holds the increasing chaos together through sheer force of will but she is at breaking point.

One day a parcel arrives at the depot addressed to Alesha. This is strictly against the rules and Alesha can’t work out who would send it to her anyway. She finds a quiet room to open the parcel but it turns out to be a special place for Auntie. In the ensuing confrontation, the two women face their inner demons as a violent event occurs which ultimately bonds them.

A play about ordinary people whose lives become caught up in the centre of a global catastrophe.

Written and Directed by Denise Stephenson
