Stephanie Jacob’s new play Again at the Trafalgar Studios could be a traditional comedy-drama about the trials and tribulations of a family, but the writer employs a clever dramaturgical device as well as using flashbacks in order to tell this story of a family of four.
Most families have a story or three, the kind of tales that go down in folklore, destined to be repeated at family events no matter embarrassing for the parent/sibling/etc involved.
‘This is essentially a play about family. It is about how family underlines everything we do. We all have family in one form or another.’
