Big Squirrel Productions


by Stephen Scheurer-Smith



Alana’s life had been great up until that day but then her world came crashing down with one phone-call

Recording artist Alana is suddenly alone when her mentor father is seriously injured in a road traffic accident. She becomes dependent on A&E doctor Kate, who is caring for her father, and when he dies her world is turned upside down by the arrival of her estranged mother Terry at the funeral.

Big Squirrel Productions premiered Alana, their third new play by Stephen Scheurer-Smith, at the 2015 Brighton Fringe and it was subsequently performed at Corpus Christi Playroom in Cambridge. The title role is played by professional actor Kattreya Scheurer-Smith who appeared in Big Squirrel’s previous Edinburgh productions as Daughter in A Middle Aged Man’s Uncertainty Theory and Eva in Chrysalis. Kattreya, who trained at UCLAN, has most recently filmed Coca Cola’s Arctic Summer commercial and a major Warner Brothers feature film.

Alana is directed by the author Stephen Scheurer-Smith. Stephen has been a playwright and actor for over thirty years and his plays have been performed worldwide.

‘An engaging and moving story graced with good performances and lovely live music’
