★★★★★ - About The Fringe
'Groundbreaking', a stunning debut.'
"Mum it’s like the sun-
It’s like she is the sun-
And everything is orange."
The Boy has just moved away for uni. The Girlfriend isn't very happy about it.
A series of suggestions on love, long distance and happiness.
When you're up all night.
In a city that isn't home.
And everything is orange.
Faith & Heresy is a form-melding piece of theatre and film inspired by a series of poems, and driven by half illuminated faces, masked voices and longing. Part play, part personal experience - it asks questions about the nature of love and the impact of love on everything we do (including making theatre) in a way that is disorientating and erratic but ultimately, familiar.
The production was directed by Matthew Gouldesbrough and shown internally at Italia Conti, before being taken outside.
Technical direction Patrick Medway.
