Part of THE VIOLENCE SERIES by The Other Room
The Violence Series is a trio of dystopian dramas set in a world that is familiar but on fire. This live anthology series of three new plays, by Matthew Bulgo, Tess Berry-Hart and Mari Izzard, asks profound questions about the darker side of humanity, exploring the themes that divide us. When does an act become violent? Should we really fight fire with fire? And how far would you go to avoid it?
American Nightmare is an intellectual thriller about the rift between the super-rich and the poor in a dystopian New York.
High above New York City, the super-rich wine and dine in sky-line restaurants dreaming of bigger and better cities. In a military bunker deep in the heart of an American wasteland, the poor compete for food and preferment in a programme with more than sinister ends. What happens when the rift between haves and the have-nots becomes unassailable?
Directed by one of Wales’ most established directors, Sara Lloyd, American Nightmare dissects the battle lines that exist within the eponymous ‘American Dream’.
