The Bunker Theatre has announced its alternative Christmas show, playing at the venue from the 11th December.
Christmas is a time for those you love, and for those you love you do whatever it takes.
Stuck between a rock and a really hard place, a teenage boy kidnaps his little brother in a bid to flee his decrepit council flat and escape his daily encounters with the authorities. But with nowhere to go and no one to turn to, what kind of future do they face?
With an estimated 100,000 children running away from home every year, Niall Ransome (Mischief Theatre Company) has created this alternative show for the Christmas period – dealing with abandonment, loyalty, family, and the real experiences of young working-class lads in Britain today.
Writer and director Niall Ransome said: “Everyone has a right to their story being heard. I thought a lot about my own experiences at school in Hull and some of the young lads I grew up with. We cast judgement when we don’t know the full story. We ignore someone on the street or on the tube. A headline in a newspaper does enough to warrant a strong reaction about someone but without reading it we don’t fully understand. We don’t take the time. We all have stories to tell, we’re all worthy and important and I feel that in a world of blockbuster movies and special effects we have a responsibility to still tell stories of real people.”
Performed by Will Mytum and produced by Eastlake Productions, FCUK’D will also have postshow events for every show including dance responses, spoken word responses, music, director and producer panels.
FCUK’D will play at the Bunker Theatre from the 11th to the 30th December. For more information and to book tickets visit: https://www.bunkertheatre.com/whats-on/fcukd
