Stage Review

‘A dark drama with an important message’
The Upcoming

‘Two-hander with an intriguing relationship at its centre’
The Stage

★★★★★ for Schism, ‘a powerful play, punching you in the face with the reality of the daily abuse experienced within society’ (Fairy Powered Productions). Starring Athena Stevens(The Death of Hector, Sadlers Wells) and Jonathan McGuinness (Bodies, Royal Court Theatre), this is ‘fringe theatre at its best’ (Sardines Magazine).

Failed architect Harrison had plans to end his life. The last thing he needed was Katherine, a young student, breaking into his house, begging for his help…

As their chaotic first encounter turns into the beginning of a twenty year relationship, the unlikely couple grow to realise that they are capable of either building something great together – or absolutely destroying each other.

Following the journey of Harrison and Katherine, Schism is a stunning new play about two people finding each other, and questions at what point does a dream become unrealistic and out of date.
