Burying your Brother in the Pavement by Jack Thorne

Quick Overview

Tom’s brother Luke is dead. This has upset a lot of people but it hasn’t upset Tom. Or, rather, it has upset him, but in ways he can’t explain and other people can't understand. You see, Tom and Luke were never friends. In fact, Tom didn't really like Luke at all.


A play about grief and looking at someone that little bit more closely.

So it’s an odd decision - to try and bury Luke in the pavement of the Tunstall Estate where he was killed. But to Tom, it sort of makes sense, in a stupid-weird kind of way. As he sleeps out on the pavement, he comes across planning officials, tramps, undertakers, police officers, sisters, mothers, estate agents, ghosts, pavement elephants, sky dragons and a strange lad called Tight who wants to sell him a Travelcard.

Written specifically for young people, Burying Your Brother in the Pavement was part of the 2008 National Theatre Connections Festival and was premiered by youth theatres across the UK.

'I need to stay here, okay? Will you tell them that? I know you don't understand, but I really need to stay here...'
