The Inevitable Quiet of the Crash

The Inevitable Quiet of the Crash

by Katie Hale & Stephen Hyde

Three women struggle to overcome the anxieties of living in modern-day London, after a man is killed in a train crash. Having pinned their hopes on a city that won’t stop moving, they must now come to terms with the unforgiving consumer society to which they have become addicted.

Premiering at the Edinburgh Fringe in August 2017, this critically acclaimed musical features an all female cast and contemporary jazz drumming score.
