Jonathan Brown

The Well Trilogy (2019)


Longlisted for the Bruntwood Prize, 2019

Jonathan Brown is one of the finest, darkly-visioned theatre-makers now writing; the much-revived The Well Trilogy his core achievement to date. It comprises blistering subversion in The Silent Stream; a savage litany of lost women in Betsy: Wisdom of a Brighton Whore; a magnificent culmination in The Well. Anything can now be expected of Brown as playwright and man of the theatre.
