“He can’t speak.” “What, at all?”

Boy meets girl. Boy can’t talk to girl. And a small asteroid has hit the capital city.

It was ridiculous. Impossible. But it happened. As London adjusts to life after unthinkable disaster, in a small town elsewhere a young man called Vin finds he can no longer speak. Vin’s friend Rach is determined to help him recover his voice. But when a charismatic and articulate survivor arrives in town, who thinks talking – or even singing – about your suffering is the way to heal, Vin’s plight is suddenly eclipsed... From award-winning playwright James Fritz, LAVA is a funny, tender, necessary story about human connection in the face of the inexplicable.

Starring Kacey Ainsworth and Dan Parr.

Duration: 1 hour 25mins with no interval

    The Times
  • James Fritz’s work is current without straining for topicality. His plays have a knack of anticipating the zeitgeist, becoming more rather than less relevant over time.
