15 year-old James wakes up in a prison cell and can’t remember how he got there…
Blackout is a hard-hitting play about getting bullied, fighting back, trying to make a name for yourself, turning vicious, doing something stupid, losing everything, then finding your way again.
Synergy Theatre Project present Blackout, a play by Davey Anderson and directed by Esther Baker.
The production will embark on a tour of London schools, followed by a week of public performances at Oval House Theatre from Tuesday 13th – Saturday 17th March.
It is performed by a company of professional and former prisoner actors and every 30 minute performance will be followed by a Q&A with the creative team. These performances will be a rare opportunity to enjoy the groundbreaking work Synergy Theatre Project produce.
Established in 2000, Synergy Theatre Project works towards rehabilitation and resettlement with prisoners, ex-prisoners and young people at risk of offending, through theatre and related activities whilst placing the wider issues surrounding criminal justice in the public arena.
“It’s as technically adroit and inflamed a piece as I’ve seen all year, funny and shockingly frank… a 75-minute slice of first class theatre.”- What’s On Stage on Girls Like That
