“We can exist outside their rules. Take back what’s ours. The miners tried, yeah. But we can succeed. Us vs Them.”

A community finds itself in disarray when the local hospital faces closure. As the fallout ripples through town, three ordinary citizens – a healthcare worker, a worried son and a young man facing homelessness – bear witness to a shocking incident involving a local politician.

Seizing an opportunity, our unlikely heroes form a movement to fight for their rights and demand change – but their campaign soon spirals out of control with vigilante activists hijacking the cause. Amy Guyler’s gutsy play is a gripping story of activism, power dynamics, and the lengths people will go when faced with injustice.

This play is showing as a double bill with Scenes with Girls. Find out more about the BOVTS Summer Festival at the Wardrobe Theatre here.

The culture at BOVTS is encouraging, respectful, welcoming and empowering; the environment and buildings are beautiful and I found Bristol to be one of the most wonderful cities in which to spend summer! Lindy Yeates, Foundation Course Student
