Saviour is set in a fantastical world, in which the characters operate under Saviour’s answer to socialism.
The play, whilst set in its mystical and other-worldly confines, is a subtle and understated statement on
issues we face in the real world.
Themes of greed, power & marginalisation run deep throughout the play. This kind of text gives me the
opportunity not only to create a fun and magical show, but pose questions to the audience and hopefully,
have them ask questions of themselves after watching it.
The spoken word/rap elements of the play are exciting for me. I feel both art forms are an underused medium
in theatre. As I write rap music myself, it’s a great opportunity for me to merge the mediums of theatre and music
to further the world-building journey.
The aim is that a piece of Saviour stays with us, even after the actors take their final bow and we merge back
