Fast

3.7 (3) · Contemporary Drama

How far would you go to find the perfect cure?

Overview

In Wilderness Heights, an isolated region of the Pacific Northwest, ‘Dr’ Linda Hazzard opens her clinic to the public.

The public do not always survive…

In a chilling parallel to our modern world of influencers peddling protein shakes and diet pills, Fast is the true story of ‘Dr’ Linda Hazzard who advocated a fasting cure that gripped the press and divided a nation. Complex, beguiling and utterly driven, was Hazzard vilified as a woman in a man’s world or were there darker forces at play?

Award-winning producer Digital Drama is delighted to bring Fast to Park Theatre after sell out shows at the Brighton and Edinburgh Fringe.

Shortlisted for Best New Play Award 2018 by New Writing South.

Age Recommendation: 14+

Critic reviews

A play which is both fascinating and entertaining and will certainly encourage its viewers to seek out more information about the real Linda Hazzard

The Upcoming

It's compelling and engaging as presented at the Park - especially with Valentine's direction, which heavily relies on its outer look and audio impact - but it's slightly flimsy script-wise

Broadway World

A fascinating true story

The Stage

The play zips along at a short 70 minutes but doesn’t really engage in the way that it could have

West End Wilma

Based on a true story, this chilling, macabre tale is utterly thrilling

Everything Theatre

The concept of Fast is unique and interesting, but unfortunately it hasn’t been executed quite right
