Burnout on Friday 18th - Saturday 19th October 2019
Midnight. A 24-hour gym. A missing person. A missing piece.
Raf - charming, charismatic, the life of the party - has disappeared. Everybody at the gym tonight has been affected by him in some way. But is Raf the only thing missing? Or is everyone missing something?
Either way, there's no containing the little spiral of chaos he's left in his wake.
His disappearance affects the characters in many ways, including their relationships; opening wounds between the flirtatious Megan and her loving girlfriend Becky. It is also the catalyst for a very messy love triangle- with obsessive gym member Elise in the midst of the disarray.
Dealing with various issues, from suicidal thoughts to drug abuse, 'Burnout' is not a play to be taken lightly. It's aim is to normalise talking about mental illness and help to fight the stigma, via theatre. But it isn't completely dark either and there are many light moments and moments of humour throughout.
As well as showcasing a fresh, new voice in the Manchester theatre scene, this production is your chance to see an extended version of the play that caused such a buzz last summer!
