MAY - JUNE 2017
OVAL HOUSE & THE WARREN, BRIGHTON FRINGE
When a peaceful politician is killed on the streets, the atrocity triggers a journey of descent in which Vida risks self-destruction in a bid to confront the rise in bigotry and fascism. Just as she feels most alone, she discovers there are others who feel the same as her – and now the deadly potential of their combined potency is about to be unleashed.
Landmines, directed by Emma Higham, was written by Phil Davies whose debut play Firebird opened at the Hampstead Theatre before transferring to the Trafalgar Studios.
The piece was created with the company through a year long exploration of political and social concerns, which included a residency at the RSC. The company formed part of the BRIT School’s unique training initiative, The Bridge Company, which creates and presents dynamic, socially relevant work in a professional context.
