About The Standard Short Long Drop
The Standard Short Long Drop is Rachel Garnet’s powerful new 90-minute drama filled with gallows humour. The piece is an exploration of class and cost of living, set against the backdrop of York in 1885.
In York, 1885, Lewis "Ludley" Thornhill, is a young man condemned to die. His luck seems to change when he is offered a stay of execution but only if he will serve as the hangman for his cellmate, Alistair. Over their last days together, Ludley tries to get to the bottom of Alistair's mysterious past and supposed crimes. The Standard Short Long Drop is an exploration of class, cost of living, and the ever-looming threat of the end framed by the final days of two unlikely friends.
