Friction Burn

One noose, two lovers and live music!

Do you really know the person you are tying yourself to forever?

Friction Burn is a 45-minute battle royale between S and H – a couple whose relationship is hanging on by a thread – as they get caught up in the manipulative love games they play with one another.

Think if Beckett and Pinter had a love child, and that love child was a fan of 90s grunge, and that’s Friction Burn.

An absurd and dark comedy unafraid to look at toxic relationships and laugh. Featuring live music that underscores the farce of two people learning how to love each other – especially when ‘being in love’ and ‘being loved’ are two very different things.

‘Two poignant, nuanced performances, in a magical Beckettian contemplation of life and escape. A brilliant directorial and playwright debut’
– Uri Roodner
