What is it?
Tickets to this sensitive drama about convicted sex offenders – awarded four stars by Time Out.
Directed by Pam MacKinnon, this new play concerns four convicted pedophiles in a group home in downstate Illinois: the amiable Fred; the nervous Felix; the sultry Dee and the hot-headed Gio.
The plot follows the four offenders as they live out their lives in the shadow of the crippling offences they’ve committed, until one day a man visits the home to confront his childhood abuser – but is he seeking closure or justice?
Harrowing, yes, but ‘Downstate’ is a heavily thought provoking and intriguing piece of theatre. Tickets now just £23, get one while you can.
