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?
A dystopian double-bill…
A brand-new bilingual play from the winner of the Violet Burns Playwright Award, Mari Izzard.
Erin, a young Mother, has lost her son but no one will listen. In a futuristic, dystopian Wales, justice is determined – like everything else – by an algorithm.
Hela asks if our obsession with data can truly be trusted? Can deep seated pain ever be defused? And how far we are willing to go to see justice happen?
Produced by The Other Room in Association with Theatr Genedlaethol Cymru.
A volunteer arrives back from working in a refugee camp to discover she is now an “enemy of the people.” Arrested and imprisoned for her actions, the only way to maintain her sanity in a world turned upside down is to discover the identity of the mysterious interrogator from her past.
The Story is a psychological thriller that interrogates the language of ‘othering’ and the stories we tell ourselves to justify violence. Is mental torture worse than physical?
