FUEL

Written by company founders Hayden Jones and Sam Foster, Fuel explores the ideas of toxic relationships, coercive control, and patriarchal systems.   

It follows Seb and Ivy, who are in a new relationship and are crazy about each other. However, what begins as bright young love deteriorates into obsession, control, need and destruction, as we witness their relationship unfold over a 12-month period.   

This hard-hitting show takes an honest look at the complex nature of domestic abuse, the psychology behind it, and the broader societal factors that contribute to this troubling epidemic. It weaves together cinematic AV, dynamic sound design, political satire, and psychological drama, carried by the skill and versatility of its two performers, who play in excess of 20 characters.    

When fuel is added to the fire, who will get burnt?  

Post-show Q&A and audience debrief included for school groups.
