Consumables, which has just appeared in the top three of our top off-west end shows of 2017, returns to London in February at The VAULT Festival.
Unapologetic, darkly comic and poignant, Consumables is a provocative play about the extreme lengths two lonely people go to to find a connection. Blaize, a young down-and-out porn star, responds to an internet ad from his number one fan. Leonard, a virgin in a gimp mask, spends his day preparing to finally meet the pin-up star of his adult video collection.
In the small North-London council flat that has been covered in plastic, Leonard offers to serve Blaize up a very special kind of meal.
Michael Hanratty and Timothy Harker take on the principle roles. The cast was assembled between new theatre company Hello Mozart and casting director Jane Frisby who noted “Consumables is such a strong and original piece of writing. It’s unsettling and provocative but with truly authentic characters that go on a profound emotional journey. We have put together a truly great cast who I know will do the script justice.”
Written by Matthew Kyne Baskott, Consumables is Matt’s debut full length play. A graduate of the National Film and Television School, his credits include the viral short film We Once Were Tide1 which played at festivals around the world and has garnered over 5 million views on YouTube.
Consumables is at VAULT Festival February 14th – 18th 2018.
