'A joyous farce'

information
cast
production team

Dylan and Lucy are best friends and housemates, but the fallout of a tragic accident causes the trajectory of their relationship to descend into unexpected chaos.

As the situation escalates and the stakes get higher, they use the game of Rock, Paper, Scissors to make some life-changing decisions; but when your choices directly affect the outcome of a game, how much of it is ever really left up to chance?

Born from a short sketch created during the 2020 lockdown and now developed into an independent full-length production, this is a comedy of errors with a twist. Written and Directed by Chess Hayden, Rock, Paper, Scissors is a farcical thriller exposing the rawness of human nature; involving friends, lovers…and possible manslaughter.

Content warning: strong language.
