Gobsmacked Theatre Company


DROPPED by Katy Warner
Two female soldiers have been abandoned behind enemy lines. Awaiting rescue, they sift through the rubble in an attempt to find a sense of purpose. Sleep deprived and under severe stress they play games to hide uncomfortable truths and inconsistent memories. They are haunted by unspoken traumas that bubble to the surface as they try to cope with their hopeless situation. They must follow orders to protect the base but the room is filling with snow, they’ve run out of vodka, the radio is broken and the baby won’t stop crying. DROPPED is thought provoking, confronting and sometimes darkly funny. DROPPED will resonate differently for every member of the audience whether that’s the way the play deals with motherhood, war, the future, the military, gender, relationships, children, memory, or history.

“DROPPED will remind you why we still go to the theatre” Lucy Haas – Great Scott Media – ★★★★½

“DROPPED is a relevant, meaty, interesting think piece, a credit to the Fringe. It is like Waiting for Godot meets the War in Iraq.”  Samela Harris -The Barefoot Review
