BH Fraser has finished a new work:

TITLE:  Blackout

NUMBER OF ACTORS:  6

SCENE CHANGES:  2

GENRE:  Black comedy

SYNOPSIS:

Act 1

3 characters celebrate their success with a business deal only referred to as ‘4695’.  Outside, anti-capitalist demonstrators gather. There is an office party.  As protestors enter the building, markets crash and ‘4695’ starts behaving erratically.  Joined by two new characters introduced as problem solvers, the group retreat to the panic room.  An interrogation of one of their number follows.

Act 2

A year later calm has returned. 2 of the 5 characters have survived events.  They are joined by a sixth character.  The other characters have gone on sick leave or been retired.   ‘4695’ has made a startlingly recovery.  It is revealed the storming of the building was part of a wider cover up.  The action ends with the statement ‘the system wins – everyone at fault / no-one at fault’.

WHAT DOES THE PLAY SAY ABOUT US NOW? 

The piece offers a take on the challenge for people to behave normally when money and power are at stake.  Blackout is the insider’s response to the Occupy Wall Street movement.  A line on the establishment and their willingness to stop at nothing to keep capitalism afloat.
