When are you most compromised in the spotlight?
Under lock and key? Or in the arms of the one you love?
Activist Hanny is finally back where she belongs, walking the streets of her hometown with boyfriend Luke. But her three months of captivity overseas is proving difficult to leave behind.
As the remnants of Hanny's time away begin to claw their way back to the surface, Luke attempts to pick up their relationship from where she left it behind which is a challenge when Hanny can't promise not to take another deadly risk, and he can't face being left behind again to fear the worst. With their happy reunion interrupted by soundbite-hungry strangers Tash and Kieran, Luke begins to question everything Hanny has told him.
Has Hanny embellished her ordeal to gain her cause some extra column inches? Or is she hiding what she's really been through in order to ease Luke's conscience? The prison doors may have closed behind her, but Hanny's interrogation is about to begin
The Frights is a twisting, darkly funny play that explores the shades of right and wrong and asks: is there ever a right time to look the other away?
Alphabetti Theatre create, produce and programme new original work from emerging artists in North East for their multipurpose fringe performance space in the centre of Newcastle upon Tyne. The Frights is Alphabetti's first production that the company have taken on tour.
