Transfer of Olivier nominated drama

Four Minutes Twelve Seconds

Following a sold out run at Hampstead Theatre in 2014 that resulted in an Olivier Award nomination, TJP and Mark Cartwright transferred James Fritz’s debut drama to the Trafalgar Studios.

‘He says they all do it. These kids, you know, they’ve got their phones. Film everything. Can’t say I blame them. I would at that age.’

Seventeen year old Jack is the apple of his mother’s eye. Di and David have devoted their whole lives to giving him every opportunity they never had – and as a result, Jack is smart, outgoing, and well on his way to achieving the grades to study Law at Durham University.

But a startling incident outside the school gates threatens to ruin everything they’ve striven for, an incident that suggests a deep hatred of their son… As events begin to accelerate, Di and David start to doubt Jack’s closest friends, Jack himself, and ultimately themselves – who can they trust?
