|Vertigo's new production Rage|
Vertigo's Rage brings controversy to Taurus, prior to tour
Date: 29 July 2009
Vertigo Theatre Productions, bring their new original production, Rage to Manchester in November, before taking the show to venues around the UK.
Rage is an original play written by Craig Hepworth and Adele Stanhope (writers of the recent hit play M) and focuses with the controversial subject or American Campus Shootings. The play tells the story of a group of college students, who 2 hours before were targeted by a fellow student on campus, as he went on a rampage through the halls of the college shooting his fellow classmates. With the campus on lockdown, several students are forced together in the same room, as they begin to try and process what just happened who is to blame?
With tempers flaring and emotions running high, the finger of blame points to everything from Americas gun culture, Mental Health, the Media, violence in entertainment, but most importantly, bullying and high school and college ‘cliques’ - realising how their own behaviour can affect others.
Rage received 2 workshop productions in 2006 and 2007 and now comes to the stage with a talented young cast including many Vertigo regulars including Emma Willcox, Rick Carter, Justin Lanata, Dale Vicker, Stuart Reeve, Louise Allen and Hepworth and Stanhope. Also joining the cast are Danny Stewart and Graham Atkin.
Vertigo have scored critical and commercial success with the original play M, the UK Premiere of Dog Sees God; Confessions Of A Teenage Blockhead, the stage adaptation of The Breakfast Club and the original comedy 3sum.
Rage is staged at Taurus, Canal Street on 3rd November.
