Time 19:45
Date 04/08/18
Price £18

Alkaline is a play about faith, friendship and fear. A play about change, painful endings and new beginnings. Where does our duty lie? And do we ever dare to be different?

Running from: Tue 10 Jul - Sat 04 Aug.

'People love being in control, don't you think? But you can't control something you don't understand.'

Sophie and Sarah have been best friends forever. Sophie is newly engaged to her fiancé Nick and wants to celebrate. Sarah also has a new fiancé, Ali, and some more big news – she has recently converted to Islam.

One hot summer evening the two couples have a get together. Sophie is desperate to meet Ali and even more desperate to rescue her drifting friendship with Sarah. Sophie also wants to ask Sarah if she’ll take off her hijab for Sophie’s wedding - a headscarf ‘just won’t quite go’ with the other bridesmaids, and Sophie likes things to match. It’s all going well (ish) until an uninvited guest arrives with some news that turns the evening – and the couples’ lives - upside down.

Alkaline is an all round thought provoking, relevant and intense piece. - ★★★★★  Fairy Powered Productions

'A thought-provoking, utterly engaging, very well-executed piece of theatre and deserves to be seen and discussed. Get there while you can!... It's brilliantly written, wonderfully staged and expertly acted throughout.' - ★★★★ London Culture Blog

'Poetic and powerful' - The Guardian

'This is sit-forward, lean-in theatre' - Entertainment Focus
