"It's not God I worry about. It's people."

Bobbi is a photographer. Jerry is a writer. Bobby is worldly-wise. Jerry is stepping out on his own for the very first time. Bobbi is gay. Jerry is straight. Bobbi is passionate, talented and artistic. And so is Jerry.

Plagued is the story of two men attempting to make a life for themselves in New York City. Inadvertently paired, together they face down the hilarity and tragedy that life throws at them.

Unbeknownst to them, and to the community which Bobbi calls his own, they are living on the precipice of an unprecedented, terrifying epidemic.

Plagued is a human story. It's about how we respond to tragedy. It's about how we treat each other and how we learn from one another. It's about Bobbi, and Jerry, and an illness that would shatter the world.

 

Plagued is part of the New Writing Festival

The OUDS New Writing Festival is an annual competition to find Oxford's best student playwrights and showcase their work.

At the Burton Taylor studio, four pieces of new writing selected by the OUDS committee will be shown and judged by a professional playwright for the title of "Best New Script".

The festival aims to provide mentoring and support for new writers, as well as encouraging individuals from the Oxford student community to become generally more involved with drama.

Duration: 1 hour 25mins with no interval

  • Love/Sick

    Tue 7 - Sat 11 May

    For the romantic, the cynic and the sick of heart Love/Sick is a play about the kind of love you won’t find in fairy-tales. Dark, funny and heart-breaking in equal measure, happy endings are far from guaranteed. John Cariani’s nine short plays sharply cut across the full spectrum of romantic relationships, from young love to old flames. There’s no sterile, airbrushed prince and princess...

  • Q&A

    Tue 7 - Sat 11 May

    When an experimental physical theatre company decide to butcher The Catcher in the Rye on stage, many questions are left unanswered… In the following live audience Q&A, the company hope to shed some light on their unique method. Instead, the room is catapulted into farcical chaos as a stern Guardian critic exposes the public disgrace that brought down lead-actor and Emmerdale-star, Seba...

  • The Ruling Class

    Tue 14 - Sat 18 May

    A 1960s manor living room is flooded with light. Surrounded by Victorian values, the audience is suddenly greeted by a magnanimous hippy – floating and grazing around the upper-classes living beyond the age in which they belong. He’s likeable, witty, and carefree. He also thinks he’s the Lord God reincarnate. The Ruling Class is a dark, witty, and satirical comedy that probes the hypocri...
