AND WHAT HAPPENS IN THE MEANTIME? THE PLANET FUCKING DIES, THAT'S WHAT.
Abbie wants to make a difference. Sam wants to be in charge. Monty wants to maintain the status quo, and Phillip just wants to tear it all down.
Twisted Firestarter is play that asks whether we are truly doing enough to protect our environment, and just how far we would go to save the world. Set over the course of a few weeks amongst the members of an activist group, the play examines what it is that motivates us to seek change, and what happens when politics gets in the way.
We presented an excerpt of the play during our (Lonely Hearts) Scratch Night, to fundraise for our next show as well as test out how the audience would react. We will further develop and edit the play based on audience feedback.
WE PLAN TO BRING THIS TO YOU SOMETIME NEXT YEAR, SO STAY TUNED FOR UPDATES!
