Let’s Talk About Philip

Helen Wood The National Trust Fan ClubIn 2022 I co-wrote and performed with Gregor Hunt the fast-paced, candid and gripping autobiographical play, Let’s Talk About Philip, at the Edinburgh Fringe.


When thirty years of silence was broken in my family, I began a detective-like quest to discover the hidden story behind my brother’s suicide.


An article about the play appeared in The Guardian https://tinyurl.com/4w5djppp


Produced in 2022 by Something for the Weekend
Directed by 2022 Olivier Award nominee Derek Bond


Let’s Talk About Philip continues its tour for 2023 in October and November.

This is a beautifully constructed, utterly engaging play, powered in equal amounts by Wood’s insightful candour and by Hunt’s flawless characterisation. I’ll be talking about it for a long time to come.’

This show strikes a difficult but perfect balance between grief and joy, and between love and anger.’
