About The Cord

Lifting the roof off one family’s home, The Cord lays bare fractures in their relationships they’ve long tried to hide.

The evocative, moving and surprising new play from Olivier award-winning writer and director Bijan Sheibani (Netflix’s One Day).

“Sometimes when I look at him, I feel like he’s me. But if the baby is me, then who am I? You?”

Ash and Anya were happy, just the two of them. Then the baby came. Ash has spent the first two weeks of his son’s life trying to work out where he fits. He watches his mother holding her grandchild for the first time, mesmerised by the mystery and delight of a new life. After she leaves, Ash watches Anya feeding their son – so close, almost intertwined.

As sleepless nights, relentless crying and hushed arguments take their toll, a storm starts to grow as a nightmarish chasm widens between Ash and his wife, his mother, and even his son.

The Cord is a brutally honest insight into the challenging truths of family dynamics. This astonishing world premiere production sees writer and director Bijan Sheibani (Till The Stars Come Down, National) reunite with the creative team behind his hit debut play, The Arrival.
