Choke written by Chris O’Connell

6th - 17th February 2018 Shop Front Theatre - Eves & matinee perfs

CHOKE is #6 in the Are We Where We Are programme at the Shop Front Theatre, and written by Theatre Absolute’s artistic director and writer Chris O’Connell.

Rob’s made a twelve-hour journey, buttoned up in a ball of five coats begged from a bunch of strangers. He’s hitchhiked in sub-zero temperatures to the edge of nowhere because he just can’t stand it any longer, and because he has the strangest, most absurd request…Choke tells the story of lifelong friends Rob and Stu, each staring into the gap between who they thought they were, and who they are now.
