The University of Edinburgh English Literature Department presents Four Steps Back, a collection of four short plays by four new writers.

Rekha explores the impact of past traumatic experience on the present, while Leaving Mary follows a man struggling to deal with his wife’s mental illness. A Fortiori reflects upon religion as a support system and Blitzed sees a woman’s life coming crashing down around her.

Transcending the boundaries of place, space and time, these plays confront the difficulties in coping with the loss of an important person; overcoming psychological barriers and attempting to move through grief.
