    Fire Exit in co-production with Tron Theatre

    A tense, suspenseful, edge-of-your-seat psychological thriller from the multi-award-winning creator of The Last Bordello, Sub Rosa, Susurrus, Long Live The Little Knife.

    Chris experienced three deaths, one after another. She’s in prison awaiting trial. But she doesn’t know why.

    Written for either gender, originally played by a man, and now performed by a woman without changing a word.

    Contrasting bold theatricality, haunting music and razor-sharp slashes of light across a stark stage, it’s a complex descent through passion, shame, devastation and the many, many forms of madness. Just beneath the surface of everyday life there’s complete anarchy lying in wait.
