A white knuckle ride of betrayal, debt, and lost innocence.
Written by acclaimed new playwright Conor McKee and directed by MEN Theatre Award winning Wyllie Longmore, Thrasher is a gripping story laced with genuine warmth and vicious comedy.
Six people spiral towards destruction over one night in Manchester. Once lost, can faith, friendship and love ever be recovered?
Initially produced at The Royal Exchange Theatre, Thrasher sold out its run in advance of opening and received a recommendation from Lyn Gardner at The Guardian.
Conor McKee Productions has created and developed new writing across the North West and elsewhere, nationally touring Conor’s plays Burnt and Thrasher and launching Script4Stage, a new writer and director development programme.
A writer development scheme will be run in conjunction with the production of Thrasher, contact Box Office for details.
“A real buzz has developed around the writer and his work. He has a real ear for dialogue and creating characters. The structure of the play is intriguing in itself… a fine piece which can only add to McKee’s burgeoning reputation.”– EXEUNT Magazine
