Olga’s new boyfriend rides a motorcycle. Kurt would rather be dead than eat dinner with his parents. They could be normal teenage siblings, just trying to survive. But Kurt and Olga have a nasty secret – one that could burn their world to the ground.
Featuring Aimee-Ffion Edwards (E4's Skins), William Postlethwaite (Collaborators at the NT) and Rupert Simonian (Punk Rock and Three Kingdoms at the Lyric Hammersmith), this is the first UK revival of Fireface since its original run at the Royal Court in 2000.
Marius von Mayenburg's work includes 2011's radical version of Hamlet at the Barbican. Sam Pritchard is the winner of the JMK Award 2012.
