Based on a 19th century true story from America, Kate Barton’s thriller Fast explores the horrific consequences of a fasting-based miracle cure that captivated and then devastated a nation.
In a chilling parallel to our modern world of influencers peddling protein shakes and diet pills, Fast is the true story of ‘Dr’ Linda Hazzard, whose fasting cure gripped the press – but also divided a nation. Complex, beguiling and utterly driven, was Hazzard vilified as a woman in a man’s world or were there darker forces at play?
Award-winning producer Digital Drama is delighted to bring Fast to London’s Park Theatre after sell out shows at the Brighton and Edinburgh Fringe. The show was shortlisted for Best New Play Award 2018 by New Writing South.
An intense, absorbing dark drama, this play’s roots in authentic events will play with your mind and emotions. Don’t miss Fast at the Park Theatre.
