‘Progress. How do we measure it?’

Based on the writing of Joseph Simpkins, I Will Delete This Story is a partly autobiographical play by Noah Wild about growing up when the past keeps returning to the surface.

For Sam, a confused sixth former struggling to control the narrative of his own life, three relationships entangle together as he is forced to relive buried trauma and romantic regret. Where does the story begin? What scene comes next? How do you order someone’s messy life into one, single narrative?
