Show Information

"LOCK UP YOUR SONS. AND YOUR DAUGHTERS IF THE MOOD FITS. TONIGHT WE ARE GETTING DESTROYED.”

In a world of limited opportunity and few ways out, a celebrity status might just save you. But today’s been a bad day.... Nate's coming to the end of his career, Yaz hasn't the means to get herself one and Josh 's injury could finish his before it's even started.... Bad days need great nights out. But at the end of the night, when things are out of control, someone might get hurt.

Lose Yourself is a funny, powerful and poignant story for right now. This major new play will take you on a fast, dark ride with three people who have one goal - to get out into the night and lose themselves.

Reviews

★★★★ “Tense and gripping exploration of aspiration, opportunity and celebrity.” The Stage

★★★★ "Katherine Chandler’s potent new play about hedonism, violence and toxic bantz confounds expectations at every turn" The Guardian

"Misplaced adulation, a horrible lack of accountability in celebrity culture and the all too dangerous influence of the internet are all exposed in this difficult and devastating night at the theatre." FywCardiff

"Nothing really does prepare you for where this story takes you." An Organised Mess Blog

"It’s a fast paced, often funny, often sexy piece that packs a devastating punch." nation.cymru
