Overview

Performances take place in Hamworthy Park as part of this year's Roundabout, Paines Plough's award-winning portable, in-the-round auditorium.

May Day in Coventry, 2022. Sixteen-year-old Leigh has been chosen as May Queen. She’s buzzin, as is the rest of the city. 

The cider is flowing and St George’s flag is flying – but during the day’s festivities something happens. Something disturbing but maybe… unsurprising. 

As the year moves on in the City of Peace and Reconciliation, Leigh must face up to the events of that hot May Day, and dig deep within herself to ask – how did she get here? And how does she get out?
