Tom Fisher's 'The Important Things' was performed as a part of the OUDS New Writing Festival 2018, as the winning script of the 'Best New Play for Voices' category.

It's election day, 2017. Long-married couple Stephen and Lily row over the breakfast table. Twenty years earlier, the two of them celebrate a landslide Labour victory. Following the couple in snapshots through their relationship, 'The Important Things' is a penetrating work that delves into the potentially devastating effects of the politics on the personal, as we wonder what exactly went wrong.
