TWISTED FIRE STARTER

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. 

HERE'S WHAT YOU HAD TO SAY:

“Handled such a real, relevant topic with such humour and light heartedness - really worked and was really engaging.

Really good political message given in a comic way.”

I really appreciated the actual knowledge in the scene it made it feel like an ‘inside-voice’.

Interesting beginning, could go many places!”
