One Of Them Ones – A new play by Charlie Josephine
Pentabus are delighted to present an inspiring and joyful new play by rising star Charlie Josephine writer of the critically acclaimed I, Joan – ***** The Times, **** The Guardian, **** Independent
A dazzling new play about two siblings living in a rural community trying to get their heads around gender identity. Frankie is desperate to be understood, accepted, loved. But LGBTQ alphabet soup has got Michael’s head spinning. Why’s it gotta be so complicated? Why can’t they understand? Why can’t things go back to the way they always were? Unpicking the complexities of identity and the fierce family love that hopefully holds us together.
“Frankie said we should do this, tell our story, cus yeah, it’s a mad one, and maybe someone might like it, and find it useful or whatever? So, that’s why we’re here….”
Suitable for ages 12+

Pentabus tour new plays about the contemporary rural world to new audiences in village halls, fields, festivals and theatres, telling stories with local relevance, plus national and international impact.
They believe that every person living in an isolated rural community has a right to exceptional theatre. They are based in a Victorian school in rural Shropshire, and to date all of their work has been made here. It then tours village halls and theatres locally and nationally.
Over four and a half decades they’ve produced 172 new plays, reached over half a million audience members, won a prestigious South Bank Show award for their show about racism, a Fringe First for their play about climate change and were the first to live stream from a village hall.
