Body of Water


Made From Scratch Theatre Company presents Body of Water by Stuart Purcell

The Pleasance Below, Edinburgh Fringe
5 - 29 August 2011

Based on a real event and inspired by recent student rioting and police clashes, Body of Water explores fear, loneliness and the impact of social media on human behaviour. In a dilapidated mansion in central London, a group of squatters host a party to launch their anti-capitalist campaign: a raucous rave that will destroy the house and change their lives forever. The beats build, the drugs kick in, and as relationships fall apart, the revellers become involved in a tragic death.
