FLESH by Rob Drummond
A group of teenagers wake up in a forest with no clue how they got there. They find themselves separated into two different teams but have no idea what game they are expected to play. With no food, no water and seemingly no chance of escape, it’s only a matter of time before things start to get drastic. But whose side are people on and how far will they go to survive?
This is a play about human nature, the tribes we create and cannibalism. Performed as part of the National Youth Theatre Connections Programme.
Why I wrote this play: 'I was interested in the question, “What’s Wrong with Cannibalism?” On the surface, it seems like a slightly comedic, almost ridiculous question. However, it is in answering such questions – and answering them honestly – that the truth of human nature can really be explored.’
* Contains adult language and themes of cannibalism *
