TINDERBOX

Sold out

In the late 21st Century, one man still clings to Traditional British Values, managing his wayward wife and running a butchers shop: his Empire. When Perchik, committed vegetarian and outlaw artist, swims across Hadrian's Channel to England and stows away in a container full of meat, he lands up in Saul's shop. Since Saul's last boy went missing, Perchik gets an instant job offer. With riots raging in the streets outside, it may be safest to accept. Or maybe not.

TINDERBOX comes after Lucy Kirkwood's first play, GRADY HOT POTATO, presented at the Edinburgh Festival in 2006, for which she won the PMA Award. She also writes for SKINS (Channel 4) and is the resident writer with Clean Break Theatre Company.
