Half Broken Things

In Development, 2018

Based on the novel by Morag Joss

Book & Lyrics by Nikki Racklin
Music by Elizabeth Charlesworth
Directed by Tania Azevedo

HALF BROKEN THINGS is a stage-musical adaptation of Morag Joss’s Silver Dagger award-winning novel.


This much-feted psychological thriller was also made into a film in 2007, starring Penelope Wilton, Daniel Mays and Sinead Matthews.


With its folk influence, strong choral sound and unsettling undertones, HALF BROKEN THINGS hints at rural England of days gone by, but it's very much a story for today, dealing with themes of loneliness and social dislocation. HALF BROKEN THINGS is, above all, about the hardiness of the human spirit and the power of family.
