State of Fear - Britain for Breakfast/Walruses/The Fabulous Derek Alfrick/The Watchers/Just Like Me/Life Sentence/Season's Greetings archiveSeven new plays by emerging playwrights in response to the current political climate in the UK. 'State of Fear. Responsibility to...?' explores society's challenges, prejudices, perspectives and uncertainties, because we believe theatre should ask questions and spark debate. Refugee crisis? EU Referendum? Islamophobia? Immigration? Whose opinions do we have and who do we trust? Britain for Breakfast by David Bottomley - Two of only six survivors of an inflatable raft launched from Syria are interviewed by a British police inspector. She tries to maintain control, but by the end of their harrowing stories, who is more traumatised? How do you ever heal the real cost of human trafficking? Walruses by Daniel Segeth - Myles is seeking answers. As the major world powers cut-off aid to Africa, Myles confronts an executive at the charity he works for. A conversation that will change his world forever. The Fabulous Derek Alfrick by Tom Powell - Derek Alfrick is a person. And like you, he's sometimes nice. Maybe he's nicer than you. No, he's definitely nicer than you. One day, Mr. Alfrick has a spectacular moment of kindness. Weakness. And he gets exactly what he deserves. Poor Derek. The Watchers by Jayne Woodhouse - In a dystopian near-future, Sarah is leading a campaign of violent action against an oppressive regime. The play follows the path from apathy to extremism through one young woman's response to the pressures of her time. Just Like Me by Rob Johnston - Two strangers meet on the street. One intends to connect. The other is keen to remain invisible. Evasion piles on denial as the fear of being noticed becomes ever more absurd, and the urge to connect turns increasingly sinister. Life Sentence by Sian Rowland - While thousands struggle to gain entry to Europe, some will sacrifice everything to leave the comfort of home behind. A mother is in ruin as the child she once knew leaves her with nothing but the stigma of his destination. Love, loss, guilt... and the will to forgive? Season's Greetings by Mai Le Dinh - A group of friends are enjoying their Christmas break by the sea, away from the hustle and bustle of London town, when they find themselves being interrupted by whirling helicopters and a knock on the door as a refugee boat washes ashore. Why didn't they stop at the house down the street?
