“But where the fuck have you actually been though? What have you really done? It’s been… I hardly recognise you mate.”
A cliffside hangout. A friendship. A forgotten town.
Summer 2013, a warm evening by the sea. James is home from University with his new girlfriend Charlotte. John, James’ best friend, can’t wait to reunite.
Until they do.
Something is changing, something seismic.
And none of them knows how significant this day will be for the rest of their lives…
A story spanning eight years, If. Destroyed. Still. True. shines a stark light on life between the cracks, and asks what happens when the place you were born can no longer be called home. Identity, class and cultures clash as life pulls childhood best mates apart. We bear witness to what we stand to lose when we cannot truly communicate, and the lengths to which we must go to find peace…
If. Destroyed. Still. True. is the debut production from JAWBONES Theatre, telling the epic stories in everyday lives.
Content warning: refences to suicide, and discussions of class, race and sexuality
