EBT+Plus with Stefan Escreet

Stefan Escreet will be joining us after 'Every Brilliant Thing' to present his latest production 'Posties'.

A script-in-hand performance of scenes from the development of a new play.

It’s Christmas 2020. Lockdown.
Jo is a keen new postie, Pat has to show her the round.

Posties is inspired by Stefan’s experiences as a temp postie on the West Coast during lockdown. Christmas 2020 was very strange because of the imposition of restrictions due to COVID. For some customers posties were the only person they would speak to that day. For others posties were barely visible – just a uniform interrupting the tele, or a row, or yet another work zoom meeting.

Posties – Key Workers helping people stay in touch.

Stefan started to wonder who looks after the Posties when they need help…
