GUTTER JUNKY

By David Kantounas

 

“Because it’s ideas that turn these things and they can be unstoppable. This book, it feeds on fear, on the worst of people. I know I wrote it. I’m the prophet to the end of our world.”

 

Harry, a young English writer, arrives in a foreign country on the brink of civil war. He’s there to make a difference, but his actions have catastrophic consequences that will resonate for years to come.

 

Spanning continents and decades, this raw, poetic play looks at how dangerous good intentions can be, exploring the collision between personal responsibility and collective destinies.

“This play has its heart entirely in the right place. Anyone with half a conscience who has worked abroad will cringe with guilty recognition.” WHATSONSTAGE
