Bill’s been feeling more and more like a ghost these days.
Billy’s been feeling like a ghost because he’s dead.
Tomorrow, the condemned estate they call home will be dust.
Tomorrow, the council push the big red button and their world changes forever.
A modern ghost story, ‘When It All Turns To Dust’ is a funny, poignant look at what it means to be a Londoner when London doesn’t feel like home anymore. Highly Commended for the Tony Craze Award ’22, the play is an exploration of loss, life and community for our changing times.

Grace’s credits include ‘What If If Only’ (Royal Court) and ‘after birth’ (Omnibus, Northwall & UK tour).
