Festival of One-Act Plays 2011

 

 

I.E.D. (written by Vic Mills)

 

Director: Neil Maidman

 


I.E.D. is a one-act play that revolves around a young man called Davey. Set in the present day, Davey is a soldier fighting in Afghanistan, who specialises in disarming I.E.D.'s (improvised explosive device).

 

However, he is dying, and during the eight minutes he has left to live, he remembers certain events of his life. These events include memories of his younger sister, Ellie, who is being challenged politically for the first time, the relationship with his girlfriend Hannah, who also narrates the play and the uncomfortable family life after a bitter divorce which left his mother in pieces.
