Written by award-winning playwright Paddy Campbell (Wet
House), Day of the Flymo looks at the lives of young people deemed to be
chaotic, a brother and sister struggling to cover up the cracks and the

Based on his own experience working in a children’s home,
Paddy Campbell’s Day of the Flymo asks what do you do when the state decides
