Boiling Frogs by Steven Bloomer at Southwark Playhouse
Factory Theatre presents Boiling Frogs by Steven Bloomer, at the Southwark Playhouse, in south London, from 14 Sep to 2 Oct 2010.
Directed by Alex Hassell
Inspired by the picnic protests held in Parliament Square between 2005 and 2007, the action unfolds against a world of ongoing natural disasters, countless public riots, the introduction of capital punishment for terrorists and temperatures reaching 42°.
Boiling Frogs pits a small group of imaginative citizens against the system as, armed only with fancy dress, blank banners and a keen eye for semantics, they attempt to re-claim freedom of speech for all.
