Description

The Visitors is an original play which centres around a night in the life of heroin addict Danny Strand as he attempts to rekindle his old flare for life. Past, present and future collide as five vastly different visitors attempt to guide him through his addiction (pain, desire, euphoria, comfort and paranoia), causing him to question his choices and how other people are affected by his downward spiral. Equal parts humourous and morbid, The Visitors explores sexuality, addiction and loneliness. Part A Christmas Carol, part Fight Club; this piece is not your conventional play about drugs.

An interesting concept about heroin addiction and the affect it has, really worth a watch, would strongly recommend.

Isabel Knightley 92 days ago

A great watch, a clever and dark comedy which tackles drug addiction in both a poignant and amusing manner. Fantastic original writing and great acting by each cast member, who all brought something new to the stage
