A Leap Of

A Leap Of

Eva believes that she can fly. Jo doesn’t think so. The two strike up an unexpected friendship on the roof of a block of flats.

Jo’s depression and consequent failure to go to school or maintain important relationships (seen in her ex-girlfriend Vera) becomes clear. The echoes of her past in Eva’s story force Jo if not to confront, then at least to admit the ways in which loss and isolation have affected her.

Leap Of is a play about sisterhood, faith, and running away. The script received a rehearsed reading at the National Theatre, being shortlisted in their New Views playwriting competition before appearing at the Burton Taylor Studio.


Leap Of is part of the New Writing Festival

The OUDS New Writing Festival is an annual competition to find Oxford's best student playwrights and showcase their work.

At the Burton Taylor studio, four pieces of new writing selected by the OUDS committee will be shown and judged by a professional playwright for the title of "Best New Script".

The festival aims to provide mentoring and support for new writers, as well as encouraging individuals from the Oxford student community to become generally more involved with drama.

Duration: 45mins with no interval
