FAST - 2019
Created, rehearsed and performed in one week as part of Camden Fringe 2019
‘Fast’ is about the life of a young student (Cara) whose life is ripped apart by the big supermarkets and the fast-food industry. After her class participates in a 24-hour charity fast, she decides to go on a hunger strike to force her community to listen to her and take action.
Fast was directed by Ella and Rosie for Burnt Orange, with assistant direction from Ashen Gupta and Felix Connolly.
