“Some bones are like ice. They’re weaker than you’d think.”
Katie and her girlfriend Hope work at their local corner shop, where the days pass in quiet, comfortable rhythms. For Katie, the little shop is a sanctuary. A place where she can hold onto Hope without anybody watching. But when new employee Michael arrives, the sands start to shift and the air begins to thicken.
Producing their fifth UK première, female led theatre company Damsel Productions presents The Amber Trap, a chilling portrait of craving and control.
Fanta Barrie plays Hope. Her theatre credits include The Cereal Café (The Other Palace) and Songlines (Assembly, Roxy).
Misha Butler plays Michael. His theatre credits include Jess and Joe Forever (Stephen Joseph Theatre) and The Winslow Boy (UK tour).
Olivia Rose Smith plays Katie. Her theatre credits include Conditionally (Soho Theatre) and Tiger Country (Hampstead Theatre).
