Thursday 14th May 2009 at the Bluecoat


Written and performed by Zena Edwards
Directed by Anthony Shrubsall

This comical and moving tale of unexpected friendship confronts the issue of security and identity through a fusion of performance poetry, theatre, movement and song. The chaotic stories of five characters in crisis are exposed through the eye of a camera. What happens when one generation collides with another and cultural expectations clash? Does the flash of a blade in broad daylight mean the end o r beginning of Security? As a performer and writer, Zena Edwards takes storytelling into the twenty-first century.

Commissioned by Birmingham Rep in association with BAC.
Presented in partnership with Apples & Snakes and The Bluecoat
