Extinguished Things

Written & Performed by Molly Taylor

Directed by Jade Lewis 

"My neighbours leave their flat one morning but don't return. Al and Evie, married 40 years, no kids. I have their spare keys. I cannot resist." 


Molly's neighbours haven't come home.  

The spare keys are in the lock.

She's over the threshold. 

In a house that will never be lived in the same way again, Molly looks under the rock of a marriage, a family, an existence and brings to light what has been left in the dark. The voices of a past echoed in belongings. Items left behind. Extinguished things.  



A new play from award winning writer/performer, Molly Taylor pieces together the story of two lives intertwined. Extinguished Things is a vivid, complex and moving look at what it means to spend your life with someone, and the nature of what you leave behind.
