SUMMARY

Uni is over, the grades are in and there’s just time for one last act of irresponsibility. On their last night as students, these lads have to face their future so a drug fuelled bash seems wholly appropriate.

Benny and Mack are students, but their views on the world are polar opposites; Benny wants to fix everyone, whereas world-weary Mack thinks people should start taking responsibility for their own lives. Party loving Timp works a dead end job in between drug fuelled weekends while Cam is a young violinist on the verge of international success. With life staring them in the face, the air in the flat and on the streets is becoming thick with tension, made only thicker by the scorching summer sun and piles of uncollected rubbish. Riot or a party? The choice is theirs.

This arrestingly dark comedy taps into a generation torn between action and inertia. The relevance of this play resonates in current social examples: the London riots, soaring student debt and an overwhelming number of unemployed graduates.

Starring Will Merrick (Skins/Doctor Who) and the company who brought you ‘Punk Rock’ in 2012, No Prophet Theatre’s latest production showcases exciting young talent, including students of RADA, LAMDA, Central and Rose Bruford and members of the National Youth Theatre. In association with Close Up Theatre (Sell Out Status 2004 – 2012), No Prophet are a risk-taking group of young actors that aim to deliver something different, exciting and original with brilliant modern writing.
