Trash by Tom Hunt at the White Bear Theatre
LittleBerry Productions presents Trash, a comedy by Tom Hunt, directed by Timothy J Howe, at the White Bear Theatre, a fringe venue in Kennington, south London, from 26 March to 13 April 2013.
An extraordinary group of students are thrown together by the whirlwind of modern university life; from raiding bins to creating melodic dins as they strive to survive on mould and mush amidst chaotic clutter.
Have you ever wondered how much food is binned per year? 3.6 million tonnes - that's £9 BILLION down the drain! But don't fret yet - tonnes are also salvaged. By the freegans and they are on a mission to avoid supermarkets at all cost, only eating for free! Raiding dustbins and foraging for mushrooms, they are happy to eat whatever comes their way. Hoarding together a load of old junk, they live in a clutter-shack of quirky collections comprising piles of percussion for their community trash-band, Jamnastic. Jumbling tunefully along, they are preparing for a newcomer to move in: Marie, a gourmet-loving girl from France. But will such a delicate palate cope with so many overpowering flavours and personalities? And what will the constantly worrying landlord, Neil, think when he drops in on a rubbish-rustled binning feast?
