And what will you do when his infamous and psychotic twin brother comes looking for him? BONES is co-produced by Live Theatre Newcastle and Hampstead Theatre, London in February 2002.Praise for previous work: "a tenderly lyrical charmer ...this felt like the most profound lesson about life. Straughan's drama was a piercing portrait of a life of rare promise and sadness cut dramatically short. Lorca's body was never found, but his spirit was briefly recovered here" - The Guardian "Inescapably haunting ...Remember the author's name" - Financial Times Winner of a 1997 Northern Writers Award, a CP Taylor award for playwriting and an Alfred Bradley award for radio
