Welcome to the subconscious fantasy realm of oppressed white American men! Davey Anderson's new play follows young Samuel into the alt-right. Samuel feels like an outsider, unvalued in his own country. That is until the Trolls invite him into their vibrant secret community where everyone looks like him and his heritage is celebrated. Now sister Wendy faces a choice – join the Troll Hunters or court the Troll King, infiltrating his retro-futurist underworld in a bid to rescue her brother. An 80s-style adventure story exploring the depths of contemporary extremism. World premiere from 2012/2016 Fringe First Award winners.
