About the show
“Focus on that focus on that anger with what’s happening that’s what will drive you that’s what’s gonna get you over the line.”
What would you give up in order to change things? Your marriage? Your children? What about your life?
As Kat takes the train journey towards London, she struggles between the desires to keep the life she has and fight for the world she wants.
Fifteen seconds of suffering isn’t all that bad when there is so much at stake.
She’s written a letter explaining everything. She just needs to get herself to Parliament Square. Find the best spot. Then set herself on fire.
James Fritz is a multi-award-winning writer from south London, whose plays for stage and radio include Four Minutes Twelve Seconds, Parliament Square, Ross & Rachel, Start Swimming, The Fall, Comment Is Free, Death of A Cosmonaut and Lava.
