Both of Bartlett’s brilliant short plays ask the same basic question: is it still possible to live a good life in an increasingly fractured society that is obsessed with success and money. My Child (2007) is set in the home, where a Father finds himself being phased out of his son’s life. Denied access to his only child, he goes to extraordinary lengths to hold on to him. This searingly honest play throws us into a violent world where good intentions count for very little, and offers an incisive, honest look at what it means to be a good parent today. Contractions (2008) takes place in a contemporary workplace that is strangely familiar and worryingly strange. Emma is a good employee. Her sales figures are high. But Emma has also been seeing her colleague Darren. She thinks she’s in love. Her boss thinks she’s in breach of contract. The situation needs to be resolved. Both of Bartlett’s plays ask big questions about the way that we choose to live our lives, or if we really have choices to make anymore?
