Etcetera Theatre



New Wave Theatre Company present the world premiere of HERO/HEROINE. A dark and chilling one-act play by award-winning playwright Dave Florez, directed by Hanna Berrigan.

A bedsit in Camden. Halloween night. 2012.

Nat pays her ex-boyfriend a visit, looking for closure. Through personal ghost stories that mirror true-life events, they open up old wounds and create new ones. Their story-telling crashes towards an inevitable, graphic climax.

Terrifying themes and images from their past culminate in a violent act of retribution. An unnerving and thrilling adult play, unfolding in real time.

Praise for New Wave Theatre Company’s playwright:

Scotsman Fringe First Award 2011

Critic’s Choice Scotland On Sunday – ‘From humdrum to violent to poignant. You leave the theatre with your head reeling.’ 

The List Theatre Pick 2011. 

***** WhatsOnStage – ‘A talented graduate of the Royal Court’s Young Writers’ Programme…Clever stuff and expertly executed.’ 

***** Across The Arts Review – ‘A master class in everything right. The production is a powerhouse of acting, writing and directing…the script is chock-full of clever insights and hilariously filthy lines…a labyrinth of ideas, brilliantly questioning the very essence of what theatre is…a tour de force…do not miss this.’ 

**** The Scotsman – ‘the script is so lithe it springs off in all directions…this a sharp, inventive piece of theatre, impeccably delivered…One of the cleverest theatrical twists I’ve seen, at this or any other Fringe. Dizzyingly brilliant stuff.’ 

**** Metro – ‘Hard hitting drama that burns bright’. 

**** Fest – ‘The least sentimental show that you’ll leave with tears in your eyes.’ 

**** One4Review – ‘Well written and disturbing…one you are unlikely to forget
