Photo Flash: First Look at the UK Tour of SEEDS

Article Pixel

Production photos have been released for seeds, currently on tour of the UK.

Judith Jacob (Dark Heart, ITV; The Five, Sky One) will star alongside Penny Layden (Belgravia, ITV; Macbeth, National Theatre) in the new UK tour of seeds. Two mothers united in sorrow, unable to escape the tragedy of knife crime, try to protect their sons - one in life, and one in death.

On Michael Thomas' birthday, his cake sits in his mother's living room, its candles burning undisturbed. Jackie wants to clear her conscience, while Evelyn's got a big speech to deliver on the 15th anniversary of Michael's fatal stabbing. Are some things better left unsaid? This compelling piece is about motherhood, loss and what is left after the worst happens.

Sensitively written by Mel Pennant and directed by Anastasia Osei-Kuffour (Typical, Soho Theatre), seeds looks to tell the, often unexplored, stories of those who fight to keep their children safe from the world in which they grow up. According to figures released in October 2019, knife crime offences in England and Wales have reached a record high. Hate crimes have more than doubled over a seven-year period; racial hate crimes make up more than three-quarters of offences.
