New Wave Theatre Company present the world premiere of HERO/HEROINE. A dark and chilling one-act play by award-winning playwright Dave Florez, directed by Hanna Berrigan.
A bedsit in Camden.
Nat pays her ex-boyfriend a visit, looking for closure. Through personal ghost stories that mirror true-life events, they open up old wounds and create new ones. Their story-telling crashes towards an inevitable, graphic climax.
Terrifying themes and images from their past culminate in a violent act of retribution. An unnerving and thrilling adult play, unfolding in real time.
