Tinderbox by Oliver Forsyth at the Hen and Chickens


Smoke & Oakum Theatre Present Tinderbox by Oliver Forsyth at the Hen and Chickens Theatre in north London from 4 to 8 November 2014.

This piece of new writing began at Theatre503 in July before heading up to the Edinburgh Festival for the month of August. It has returned to London with a new run as the resident company of the Hen and Chickens Theatre.

"Three activists meet beneath a bank intent on starting a revolution by bringing the business to it’s knees. Their high ideals of peaceful and international change, however, are soon undermined. As the plan falls apart the group are further alarmed by the appearance of Mazzy, an employee of the bank they are beneath. This new black comedy looks at both our fondness for quick-fix political solutions and our general apathy towards instigating change."

Looking for the best seats...
