RADAR PERFORMANCE: Chalk Farm

by AJ Taudevin
Sold out

Presented by ThickSkin in association with the Bush Theatre as part of RADAR 2013

Award-winning playwrights Kieran Hurley and AJ Taudevin, join forces with highly-acclaimed ThickSkin (Blackout, The Static) in this explosive new play about love and blame in the aftermath of the 2011 London riots.

Through a mother’s desire for safety and acceptance and a young boy’s need to be recognised, to be part of something, Chalk Farm offers an uncompromising and ultimately heartbreaking examination of a fractured society.

“A point marked in time when it all began to crack, when the game is over, when the surface is ripped open showing what the world really looks like. And we were there.”

Chalk Farm features ThickSkin’s trademark style of heart-stopping visual theatre, fusing multi-media, movement and text. Please note that Chalk Farm has a 14+ age restriction
