Roadkill

Front Cover
Oberon Books, Jun 21, 2012 - Drama - 72 pages

Winner of the 2012 Olivier Award for Outstanding Achievment In An Affiliate Theatre.

A world away from you, but a world right on your doorstep.
A powerful story of the terrifying complexities of sex trafficking today based on real experiences. Moving away from generalised narrative accounts of trafficked women, this explosive, site-specific production combines direct, chilling performances with video and animation. Roadkill exposes the brutal and hidden truth behind the newspaper headlines as audiences share in the intimate, harrowing details of a young woman trapped in a living nightmare.

‘It’s uncomfortable, vivid, nauseating and induces fist-clenching anger. But it’s also brilliant, sobering, frank, very moving, and, unfortunately, a real snippet of British society’ – What’s On Stage

‘Brutal and compelling’ – Evening Standard

‘Immersive theatre at its most powerful’ 4 stars – Financial Times
