'Faslane' is a dynamic and utterly unique solo show, delving into the murky waters around Trident: the UK’s nuclear deterrent.
Having family who have lived and worked on the Faslane nuclear naval base her whole life, Jenna Watt looks at what happens when the personal and the political collide over this most divisive of issues.
With a pounding sound design by Kim Moore, this electric piece of topical theatre provides a balanced and considered outlook on the Trident question, allowing audiences to interrogate their own stance on the issue.
'Faslane' was one of the most talked about shows of the 2016 Edinburgh Festival Fringe. Appropriately, the performance in Cove is the official First Night of its touring season.
Here is what some of the critics had to say:
“Watt performs with an intelligent creativity that keeps the audience gripped”
(Edinburgh Festivals Magazine)
“Watt’s show delicately pulls apart all of the complexities of the issue and puts
them under her theatrical microscope… An illuminating piece of topical theatre.”
"One of the most inspiring pieces of live performance art you will ever have the pleasure of experiencing" (Skinny on Flâneurs).
