Kae Tempest’s lyrical and explosive Wasted flows through 48-hours in the lives of three friends in their mid-20s; teacher Charlotte, city boy Ted and deadbeat Danny. Grieving their mate Tony and a carefree adolescence, the impassioned trio reunite on the 10th anniversary of Tony’s death and vow to change their lives for the better. Set to a pounding soundtrack and racing through the South London nightlife, Wasted shines a neon light on dreams, death, mistakes and making your mark.

Kae Tempest is a British spoken word artist, poet, recording artist, novelist and playwright. They won the Ted Hughes Award for poetry and have been nominated for the Mercury Prize for music. Wasted is their debut play.

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

The School is in a beautiful part of Bristol, overlooking a huge park called the Downs. We sometimes take advantage of our close proximity to the Downs during the summer term, practising fight and dance routines, or voice or singing classes! Dan Hall, BA Professional Acting student
