Useful Idiots written and directed by Robert Meadows


To be performed in the Salisbury Studio

When Professor Ella White rescues one of her students from a street attack and takes him to the city flat that she shares with her daughter, Daisy, and older partner, Graeme, an installation artist, she opens them all to unexpected dangers when a female investigator arrive with more than questions on her mind.


This new 70-minute play, set in a near future where turmoil and violence has hit the cityscape of the north, explores how some with the best intentions have left open the door to extremism and intolerance. It is a tense drama that hopes to involve the audience in thinking about current issues in ways that might engage and provoke.
