A TALE of betrayal, friendship and love is coming to Sheffield’s Lantern Theatre.
‘Thrasher,’ which opens on Friday, follows the story of six characters pushed to breaking point over the course of one night in Manchester.
Lee and Jenny are in a relationship being ground down and torn apart by debt. While Jenny has started a home massage business and is nervously awaiting Frank, her first customer, Lee has embroiled himself in a mess of drugs and betrayal as he stumbles into a misguided business deal. The dysfunctional and sadistic relationship between Colin and Vic draws in Lee, as well as Vic’s best friend, Chloe. As morning approaches, all six are led to decisions that will dramatically affect the rest of their lives.
The play is written by Northern Ireland playwright Conor McKee, whose last play ‘Burnt’ received critical acclaim.
“This is a truly gripping story laced with genuine warmth and vicious comedy,” explained a spokesman for the Lantern Theatre.
“We see six people spiralling towards total destruction over one night in the city, who are left wondering if - once lost - faith, love and friendship can ever really be recovered.”
The show will run for two nights in the city as part of the Lantern’s Young Person’s Contemporary Theatre Scheme, in which the theatre offers limited numbers of £5 tickets to young people aged 14-24.
