A ThickSkin ‘Matchbox’ production

Created by Jonnie Riordan, Jess Williams and Ben Walden

AWOL is the first in a new series of micro-productions by ThickSkin, known as Matchbox Plays. These bite-sized performances celebrate emerging talent and help to get people involved in theatre through innovative outreach activities. Each Matchbox play is created as a

spin-off to our mainstage work and accompanied by fun and energetic, physical devising workshops.

A highly physical, fast paced, multimedia story of escape and new beginnings.

In a cold, controlled world, where all are expected to conform, two unlikely individuals team up and attempt to go under the radar, to break away from the norm.


What’s on the other side of the wall?

What will you find when you finally open your eyes?

Who will you meet when you get there?

And will it be any better than what you already have
