In the beginning God created the heavens and earth and… Max! Max is in a car crash with his brother and his girlfriend Tess, who dies in the accident. Following the loss of his girlfriend, he tries to commit suicide and fails, but when he wakes up, he believes she is still alive, leaving him left questioning what happened to Tess. Answers appear as apparitions of modernised biblical characters, aiding Max in his discovery or tempting him away. His only hope of recovery lies in the hands of his brother Chris.

TESTAMENT is an award-winning play exploring how humans deal with grief and how it effects those around them, exploring suicide, loss and guilt. Inviting you into the mind of a car crash survivor as he tries to piece together his fractured memories – exploring the fragmented and nonlinear process of our memories and how trauma can affect this.

★★★★★ “Intricately crafted triumph of creativity” Ed Fringe Review
★★★★★ “This production offers something new whilst tackling the particularly sensitive and current issue of suicide amongst the youth” London Pub Theatres
★★★★ “It’s easy to see why it was so successful at Edinburgh Fringe, and London audiences will surely heap just as much praise on this brave new piece of work.” Theatre Weekly

call me fury

“The fire of fear is the only flame that burns bright.”

CALL ME FURY is about The Salem Witch Trials. Sort of. A feral scream of rage, this play is a commentary about sexual politics and feminism today – set to live folk music.

Like a spell: a good spell.” Lyn Gardner
