M.Rock is a magical new play, inspired by a true story, about
the enduring joys of music, dancing and self-discovery. The
generation gap just got tighter.
In his distinctive language, Philpott charts the fortunes of
18-year-old Tracey and her grandmother Mabel. Tracey has
just finished school, she’s bought a round-the-world ticket
and is flying away to soak up experiences. By contrast, Mabel
is stable. She plays piano for The Players, knits for the African
appeal and looks after Hilda’s cat.
When Tracey misses her plane home, Mabel sets off on a quest to find her granddaughter. But what she finds is her inner DJ.
