'Why were you there, that night? I didn't even know your name.'
Cara and Jon are study buddies; sometimes party goers. Ruby and Adam are clinging to a fractured relationship. As the four meet center stage, the night unfolds and unspoken secrets between them are revealed.
'Firewater' was PARADOX Theatre Company's debut production, and it toured to the Edinburgh Fringe in 2017. Based on verbatim interviews, the play fused fiction with reality, exploring the issues of consent and intoxication. Previews of the show were at Poltimore Festival, 28th May, the Chapel, Exeter.
