An insight into previous work by Teastain Theatre

Thirst (c) Rebecca McGreevy (1).CR2


In a swelteringly hot bunker underneath London, Nell has Lord Tobias Bell - the son of a water bottle magnate - making threatening videos, holding machine guns and cooking lentil-based dishes. They plot to pull his sister, Flora, into the bunker, to hold her hostage till their climate based demands are taken seriously. But when Flora arrives, there’s something else sitting underneath their hate.

As Flora and Nell run from and circle each other, the two are drawn into a tense, obsessive relationship that hurtles toward some sort of eventual disaster. 

And there’s the nagging feeling that maybe they’ve met before.

''Milne’s writing is honest and visceral throughout and jam-packed with detail.''

London Theatre 

"Ashley Milne’s new play dives right into our fandom obsessions whilst also navigating the nuances of a heteronormative world as a young,  queer and Twilight obsessed woman. "
