As part of the English Theatre Berlin's EXPAT EXPO Immigrant Invasion Expo.

An experimental theatre piece about a woman's escape to 'FIREWATER' - the soap opera with an uninvited guest.


‘Frankly, I was horrified by life, at what a man had to do simply in order to eat, sleep, and keep himself clothed. So I stayed in bed and drank. When you drank the world was still out there, but for the moment it didn’t have you by the throat.’

Charles Bukowski

Jane drinks.

In certain religions and spiritual beliefs, when one consumes alcohol their body becomes vulnerable; an open receptacle for bad spirits. This weakened state leaves the body defenceless to becoming demonically possessed. Jane, the newcomer to ‘Firewater’, is one of the unlucky ones that happens to fall victim.

A compilation of confessions and delusions, Firewater is a twisted nightmare of insatiable desires.
