Fear

Sold out

How far could you go to get what you want?

A contemporary tale of desire and greed, FEAR explores the impact of a life changing encounter between two Londoners from contrasting worlds.

Taking a deeper look at what we value and fear, BAFTA award winner Dominic Savage’s stage debut is a raw journey into the heart of some of our deepest urban anxieties.
