Written by Alex Morrisroe. Seconds is part of the The First 20 Minutes performances produced by Writer’s Avenue.

A teenage girl is shot dead in Manchester. Her mother searches for reasons. Her grandmother for someone to blame. Both long for a sense of normality. But if in the briefest second your life changes forever, is it possible to ever live normally again? Seconds is a story about living with loss and trying to find your way out of the dark.
