ABOUT

Sure Shots is an initiative by SweetScar to bring audiences the best of new theatre writing, in bite-sized form and for free.  Sure Shots presents bursts of high-quality theatre that aim for lasting impact.

SweetScar has created eight Sure Shots, all of which have been UK stage premieres.  They have explored self-help, self-harm, sexual abuse, environmental issues, polar exploration, inter-species relationships, the dilemmas involved in ordering food, and the disastrous consequences of accepting a muffin.

A red man and a blue man stand in their respective squares. Red wants Blue to be like Red.  It doesn’t end well for Blue.

WRITER’S NOTES

Muffin is a very short play.  It’s designed to create maximum impact in a minimal amount of time; in some ways it takes longer to describe it than to read it.

Its surface may be colourful, but its innards touch on several contemporary issues, including xenophobia; how immigrants are expected to assimilate themselves within their new society; and how some nations have a tendency to say, “Here, have democracy, you’ll love it!”… without stopping to listen to people’s actual needs.
