Stephen Draycott: Rehab to Rehab

Rehab to rehab is a 10 year journey of acceptance and self-discovery. On 1st of August 2003 Stephen suffered an Acquired Brain Injury (ABI), which left him with a number of psychological issues to both tackle and adjust to. Stephen would like to give thanks to Headway, a leading brain injury charity who gave him support, without whom and many others, this story would have been impossible to tell.

‘If I had one wish, it would be that families living this nightmare would find some sort of comfort from within these words, to help them start this long journey with strength and positivity.’ - Stephen Draycott

Anna Quicke: Highway

Based on the story of real-life highwayman, John Nevison, and written by one of his descendants, Anna, Highway is a story of love, loss and life in London in the 1600’s.
