We all come from somewhere, then we choose.
The Peregrine is a new play by New York playwright Philip Holt, winner of the 2017 Stockwell Playhouse One-Act Festival bursary prize. It’s a time of political turmoil. Old loyalties shift in the direction of new power. Scores will be settled. Can you kill the one person you learned to call a friend? Is it betrayal or necessity? Paul, snatched as a child from poverty and groomed to be a political assassin in a life of privilege and violence, must confront Theo, his one-time guide. Their choices are rooted in a shared past. A tango takes centre stage as Paul learns that the dance of time and memory will define the future.
