Flesh - Connections 2019


by Rob Drummond

A group of teenagers wake up in a forest with no clue how they got there. They find themselves separated into two different teams but have no idea what game they are expected to play. With no food, no water and seemingly no chance of escape, it’s only a matter of time before things start to get drastic. But whose side are people on and how far will they go to survive? 

This is a play about human nature, the tribes we create and cannibalism.

Rob Drummond – Why I Wrote this Play:

‘I was interested in the question, “What’s Wrong with Cannibalism?” On the surface, it seems like a slightly comedic, almost ridiculous question. However, it is in answering such questions – and answering them honestly – that the truth of human nature can really be explored.’

Workshop Day

Derby Theatre’s Youth Ambassadors have programmed a range of workshops and events to run alongside this year’s Connections performances; from dance to scare acting and cake decorating to script writing, we promise there is something for everyone!
