Synopsis

Have you ever thought about the way knowledge is passed from one generation to the next?

Set in the fictional near future, the world as we know it ceased to exist after a great illness wiped out society. A handful of survivors must train up the burnt out youth in order to rebuild society. But who decides what the new personalities will be like?

Burnt Out Souls is an exciting and haunting new work composed by award-winning film and theatre composer Alexander Rudd. David Gale's text is imaginatively and thoughtfully brought to life through Hilary Westlake's direction and offers an insight into a post-apocalyptic world.
