Based on the book Right from Wrong by Jacob Dunne.

This play is dedicated to James Hodgkinson and all victims of one-punch

Teenager Jacob lives in The Meadows, Nottingham. Like his mates, he spends his Saturday nights drinking in the city, looking for a bit of trouble. One adrenaline-fuelled night in Old Market Square, he throws a single punch at a stranger – with fatal consequences. Released from prison, Jacob is lost and adrift. Searching for answers, Joan and David – the parents of his victim James – ask to meet. An unlikely connection is made,and Jacob’s life begins to turn around.

Nottingham’s James Graham, is one of Britain’s most celebrated writers, winning multiple Olivier Awards, as well as BAFTA, Emmy and Tony Award nominations. In Punch he turns Jacob Dunne’s unflinching truelife account into a gripping and moving new play, that’s firmly rooted in our city, energetic, entertaining and heartbreaking.

Heartbreaking and heartwarming – James Graham’s most moving work yet.

An absolute POWERHOUSE of a production – it NEEDS TO BE SEEN.

FABULOUSLY DIRECTED – Every actor SHINES

SEARINGLY POWERFUL
