IF THERE IS I HAVEN’T FOUND IT YET by Nick Payne

Sold out

Surviving school as a fat kid is tough enough. When your Mum's a teacher, it's hell. What's more, Anna's Dad is obsessed with saving the world and her maverick uncle Terry is dossing on the couch.

When Anna hits back at the bullies, she finds herself suspended from school and stuck at home with hapless Terry trying to save her. But Terry needs saving himself, and as the bond between the two deepens, Anna finds herself swept up in a friendship she can't live without.

Nick Payne won the George Devine Award for Most Promising Playwright 2009.
