I ain't got a city named for me . . . The swans have though, haven't they. They got a city named for them. Seventeen-year-old Emma dreams of travelling adventures beyond her Swansea home. Rhys, her boyfriend, has other plans for them. Facing the consequences of their actions under the disapproving eye of Emma's mother, they struggle to find a happy medium. Now, camped out on Swansea seafront, they must confront the difficult question of what it takes to leave the place that shaped them. A story about what happens when life gets in the way of your dreams. Sam Burns weaves together a touching, sensitive play that tackles our conflicting emotions about the place we call home. Not The Worst Place received its world premiere at Clywd Theatr Cymru on 23 April 2014 in a production by Paines Plough.
Sam Burns's produced work includes a monologue in Paines Plough's Come to Where I'm From (2010), Two Bears for Sixty-Six Books at the Bush Theatre (2011) and Amnesty for Agent 160 presents Agent 160 (2012). Not The Worst Place is Sam Burns's first professionally produced full-length play.
