A chance encounter between two dilapidated souls transcends into a dark and mischievous odyssey into the murky recesses of a forgotten mind. With toast.

Set in an English coastal town, Scab delves into themes of family and loneliness with a humorous, sharply-written story by Luke Stapleton presented by acclaimed new writing company Encompass Productions. Directed by Jamie Biddle and performed by Conor Lowson, Scab is a one-person play about social responsibility in a world where nobody cares.
