Description

We go behind-the-scenes into the Wildefire rehearsal room and chat to Writer Roy Williams, Director Maria Aberg and lead actor Lorraine Stanley about Roy's new police thriller and the challenges of bringing it to the stage. Wildefire runs on the Main Stage 6 - 29 November. Click here for tickets and more information - http://www.hampsteadtheatre.com/whats-on/2014/wildefire/ South London, the present day. Gail Wilde is an average policewoman, but one who lives up to her nickname, ‘WILDEFIRE’ – and in the precarious world of modern policing, being wild or full of fire is hardly likely to be appropriate for the job in hand… Suspicions surrounding Gail’s professional conduct reach fever pitch when a fellow officer is involved in a serious incident on the beat. Conspiracy theories and rumours are rife – not only at work but at home too – and a cycle of accusations and recrimination ensues, spiralling out of control. Roy Williams’ riveting new thriller looks at the maelstrom of urban policing and the mental and physical impact it has on the people we rely on to keep the peace.
