Out of Joint and the Bush Theatre present

Flight Path

Jonathan’s eighteen. Bright boy. Great future. People expect things – especially now that his dad’s walked out, his mum’s got her career and Danny needs looking after. Danny – his brother with Down’s syndrome and a love of creative swearing. But Jonathan’s best friend needs him too. It’s hard work burgling houses all on your own.

A lot can happen in a year. Especially when it’s the most important year of your life.

Flight Path premiered at the Bush Theatre, London, in September 2007 in a co-production with Out of Joint.

REVIEWS

“David Watson is a remarkable writer – he writes with searing accuracy and without any shrill moralising… Naomi Jones’s direction draws performances from the actors that seem casual but are expertly observed”
-Sunday Times

“In this lively and compassionate play, Watson has an especially sharp ear for the black lingo adopted by Jonathan and his friends, and for the painfully funny conversations between teenagers and their parents ”
-Time Out

“Quirky humour and a sharp eye for inter-generational awkwardness. Watson also writes perceptively about fraternal love-hate. The scenes between Jonathan and his demanding brother are superbly played by Cary Crankson and Scott Swadkins… Watson has a bright future”
-Michael Billington, Guardian
