Tremors, the latest play from award-winning playwright Tim Cook, premieres at London’s King’s Head Theatre next month.
It marks the return of Royal Court Young Writer Cook to the King’s Head Theatre following his 2015 production of Crushed.
Produced by Cook’s Brighton-based, Broken Silence Theatre and directed by Paul Macauley, Tremors is an urgent new play about integrity and the true cost of fighting for what you believe in.
Tom Crowe, a rising star of the Labour party, is thrown into a political scandal after an incident in a hotel room. Seeking to rebuild his image, he returns to his seaside hometown of Eastbourne to make amends.
But what he finds there is even more disturbing – a fractured community on the verge of imploding, besieged by vandalism and rioting.
Ultimately, he must decide what’s more important – his career or the future of the community he left behind.
Tremors runs at the King’s Head Theatre, Islington, on June 25/26 & July 2/3.
