Bradford, in the month of Ramadan. Latching on to the latest grooming scandal, racists plan to march through the city. Shaz, a local garage mechanic, desperately tries to keep his business running smoothly so he can save up and settle down. In this combustible atmosphere, his sister Samina is determined to make her voice heard...
We are going to tell a story, one that is not often told; the story of a woman who exacts her revenge on the men that destroyed her and the gods that cursed her. We are going to tell the story of Medusa..the truth.
Medusa will be touring a rehearsed reading version of the show, this is a chance for audiences to get close to the creative process, to feedback ideas and to directly impact the development of the performance, which will tour the UK this Autumn.
1941. Egypt. WWII. An escaped German officer. A two-day chase across the brutal Sahara. A triumphant capture. A hero's return. 1991. England. Jack reigns from the armchair of his rest home, a local legend. Decorated veteran of Tobruk. Former river warden, boxer, horse whisperer, boat builder, charmer, prolific father and husband to a very unhappy wife. Memories are, by his own hand, tattooed on his body but dementia is eroding his mind. As the Gulf War rages, the past drags him back to the scorched sands. Inspired by the writer's grandfather.
Scorched uses new writing, visual physical theatre, period music and an innovative set to create the workings of a mind sinking into the sands of time.
