39 Degrees

t's July 25th 2019. It's hot, too hot!

The metaphorical gates of hell have opened for new Prime Minister Boris Johnson, so screw it, let's extend our overdraft limits for a cheeky pint.

'I've had a week that even Craig David would shy from writing a song about, and now it's just too fuck'n hot'.

A bold, physical and frankly piping hot piece of new writing. A dark comedy about friendship, fear and a fucker of a week.

Two 39 Degrees days, 25th July 2019 London and 31st December 2019 Australia. Two houses are burning down, one is ours and one is mine

VAULT Festival Award Winners RedBellyBlack Theatre present '39 degrees'.

Directed by Alistair Wilkinson (Digging Deep, VAULT Festival 2019, 'Crucial theatre' -Lyn Gardner)
