A Warm Summer Night’s Genocide
Age Guideline: 15
Warning: Graphic descriptions of violence throughout the play.
Written & Directed by Henry Burt
Arthur and Esmerelda are just your average pair of discontented thirty-somethings, struggling with the mundanity of married life. But as the world around them descends into violence and fascism, the couple are forced to put their sexual problems on hold when a fugitive turns up at their door. Written and performed by members of the University of Essex’s Theatre Arts Society, A Warm Summer Night’s Genocide is a crude and humorous spin on the world’s steady backslide towards fascism.
