Something Awful

Something Awful

VAULT Festival · 28 JAN - 02 FEB

Location: Cavern - The Vaults, Leake Street

“What happens when your online monster comes to life?”
“Flux Theatre’s Something Awful comes from director-writer partnership Lucy Jane Atkinson and Tatty Hennessy, whose lovely A Hundred Words for Snow transferred to Trafalgar Studios last year. Inspired by the story of the Slenderman, it is about on-line monsters coming to life in a small town when a new girl arrives at school with a horror story of her own.”


Soph, Jel and Ellie love sharing scary stories online. But when a girl in town goes missing, it seems their online monster’s come to life.

Flux Theatre create socially engaged work that takes risks in form and challenges conventional storytelling. Previous work includes: Four Time Offie Nominated CHUTNEY (Bunker Theatre), bottled. (VAULT Festival), Dubailand (Finborough Theatre, nominated for an OffWestEnd Award). Flux Theatre are founders of EMERGE and Flux GYM.

Director-writer duo Lucy Jane Atkinson and Tatty Hennessy return to VAULT Festival 2020 after the roaring success of 'A Hundred Words for Snow' at VAULT Festival 2019. The production transferred to Trafalgar Studios and received 4 Offie Nominations including Best Play and Best Director.
