THIS PERFORMANCE TOOK PLACE IN 2008 Written by Chris O’Connell Directed by Matt Aston Chaotic, fast, and furious, Zero is the latest play from multi award-winning Theatre Absolute. Written by Chris O’Connell, Zero is an explosive and anarchic stare at the ethics of torture, and the curse of censorship. Twenty years from now, in the face of a feast of unabated nihilism, hundreds of camps have been built to torture, and gain information at any cost, from those who aim to blow apart the rich pickings of a world that is wealthy beyond its dreams. Alex, a translator at Camp Zero, seeks to tell the world of this brutal regime and finds his life is suddenly on the line. Survival is paramount, death may be inevitable, but the truth has to be told. “This is theatre at its best. There are no gimmicks, no cheap shots, just wonderful words and glorious actors.” Hang Lenny Pope - British Theatre Guide Suitable for ages 15+ Contains Strong language and adult themes Click here to read a review of Zero
