2012 OLIVIER AWARD
brilliant, and powerful.” – The Scotsman
“★★★★★ A performance of shattering intensity.”
– Evening Standard
Roadkill begins on a bus with 25 audience members
accompanying 13-year-old Mary and her “Auntie” to Mary’s new “home,” a benign looking
Brooklyn apartment. Having just arrived
from Nigeria with the hopes of learning English and one
day landing a good job, Mary’s excited, bubbly chatter peppers the
ride... Completely sold-out in
Edinburgh, Paris, London, and Glasgow, Cora Bissett’s critically acclaimed, explosive
Roadkill thrusts audiences into the
brutal, complex, and hidden world of human trafficking (based on the real
experiences of women trafficked to the west). The
performances are brave and affecting, making it impossible to turn away or
remain complacent. Roadkill is
the only production in Edinburgh Fringe history to win every major theater
Roadkill contains strong language and adult
themes. Recommended for audiences aged 16+. If you have any questions regarding the content of this production, please contact Emily at email@example.com or 718.834.8794 ext. 11 (M-F, 10a-6p).
