Wrecking Ball

Action Hero

PaperBack (16 Sep 2016)

It's a story about a male photographer and a female celebrity. Its a question about how far we'll go, how much we think we're in control and how much we're prepared to 'go with the flow'. The piece playfully manipulates theatrical conventions and narrative expectations, revealing the seductive power of make believe and the subtle abuses of power that dictate our relationships - with each other, with art and with language. The authors of the work are also the performers and the lines between truth and fiction, and consent and coercion blur until they're destroyed.

‘Action Hero, who cleverly play on the act of theatre and its suspensions of disbelief, make us complicit in this cunningly constructed and entertaining show.’ Lyn Gardner, Guardian
