DARK VANILLA JUNGLE by Philip Ridley

Burning Coal Theatre at the Camden Fringe Festival – August 10 – 14, 2016
Cockpit Theatre, London, England

Burning Coal Theatre Company of Raleigh, North Carolina returns to the Cockpit with Philip Ridley’s brutal 70 minute “Dark Vanilla Jungle”.  

A scalding play about a young woman trying to come to terms with a terrible breach of trust.

In November, 2014, Burning Coal brought over David Edgar’s roaring Iron Curtain Trilogy (4-stars, Michael Billington, Guardian).

The company returns with Philip Ridley’s quietly devastating masterpiece.

Wednesday 10th to Saturday 13th August – 9:00pm
Sunday 14th August – 8:30pm

All Tickets: £10 at http://tickets.thecockpit.org.uk/Sales/Shows/Dark-Vanilla-Jungle#book
