Made of Stone is the first play by Leo Butler, first performed as part of the Young Writers' Festival at the Royal Court in London in 2000. Butler called the play, which is named after the Stone Roses' 1989 song of the same title, his 'love letter' to Sheffield. Butler says that the starting point for any of his plays is an image here he claimed it was that of two brothers standing by their father's grave. The play centres on three brothers coming to terms with their father's death. Time Out praised it as a corrosive examination of manhood, capturing a regional way of living, once bound by heavy industry, manual labour and close, interlocking friendships, now brought to its knees.

  • Made of Stone is the first play by Leo Butler, first performed as part of the Young Writers' Festival at the Royal Court in London in 2000. Butler called the play, which is named after the Stone Roses' 1989 song of the same title, his 'love letter' to Sheffield. Butler says that the starting point for any of his plays is an image here he claimed it was that of two brothers standing by their father's grave. The play centres on three brothers coming to terms with their father's death. Time Out praised it as a corrosive examination of manhood, capturing a regional way of living, once bound by heavy industry, manual labour and close, interlocking friendships, now brought to its knees. The most famous scene in the play is an Oedipus complex scene where two teenagers have role play sex and the young man unbeknownst to the woman asks her to call him by his father's name while he calls her by his mother's. What's on in London praised it as one of the most excruciating scenes of teenage sex ever staged. The play was published in a collection of his work issued by A & C Black. (en)
