This is Matty, and he is fucked


A collaboration between Matchstick and Appetite Theatre

this-is-mattyfinalf“You have spent so much time around kids with no futures that you realise you don’t have one either. You realise life is a ferris wheel not a roller coaster and you are never fucking getting off unless you can jump from the top.”

This is Matty, and He is Fucked is a play about your friend Matty. Matty probably won’t make it to 30, but you know he’ll enjoy every last second.
Serafina Cusack’s fast paced style of writing is complimented by an explosion of movement, street art and electronic music that takes us through the euphoric highs and come-down lows of the illegal rave scene.
The piece is a drug fuelled stream of consciousness, that draws you into a world of teenagers, abandoned buildings, music that will blow-your-brains, nos canisters, dealers, pills, police and partying.
