Party Trap

A television journalist and a politician clash live on-air. What begins as a traditional television interview slowly unfolds into a waking nightmare. A trap has been set: which side will walk into it?

Standby For Tape Back-Up and BBC Radio Four star ROSS SUTHERLAND’s debut play is a darkly comic glimpse into Britain’s future. This story is experienced entirely in palindromic form.

Written by Ross Sutherland. Directed by Rob Watt (Standby For Tape Back-Up). Starring Simon Hepworth as Sir David Bradley and Zara Plessard as Amanda Barkham MP. Original music by Jeremy Warmsley (Summer Camp). Commissioned by Shoreditch Town Hall. Developed with the support of Shoreditch Town Hall, Metal Peterborough, Unity Theatre Liverpool and Arts Council England.

Shoreditch Town Hall, London
