M.Rock is a magical new play, based on a true story, about the enduring joys of music, dancing and self-discovery.
In his distinctive language, Philpott charts the fortunes of 18-year-old Tracey and her grandmother Mabel. Tracey has just finished school, she's bought a round-the-world ticket and is flying away to soak up experience. By contrast, Mabel is stable. She plays piano for The Players, knits for the African appeal and looks after Hilda's cat.
When Tracey misses her plane home, Mabel sets off on a quest to find her granddaughter. But what she finds is her inner DJ.
