Directed by Chloe Masterton
Jenna helps people. No matter who you are or where you are in the world, when life strikes you a blow, Jenna is there for you. Because, like you, she has suffered - shes lived with chronic fatigue for over 6 years now, and she runs this blog to help you cope.
Jennas also smart. She knows that opening up her life to the whole world has its dangers. But when Davids comment lands on her blog, the temptation to find out more is impossible to resist.
The Orator is a messily human thriller about the struggle of self-help and online identity.
Marietta Kirkbride has been a Pentabus Young Writer, a writer-on-attachment at Bristol Old Vic and is a founder member of Bucket Club. Chloe Masterton is a Bristol-based Director making theatre in the South West and beyond. She is a recent graduate of the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School Directing MA.
The Orator will be preceded by The Driver, a short play by John Bassett.
As we wait to board the last train of the day the kindly driver munches on a sandwich and chats away, putting us at our ease. Everything seems so ordered and normal - there couldnt be anything sinister here .... could there?
