The Mercy Seat

September 2001. The world has changed overnight, but the events that devasted New York and elsewhere in the US presents Ben and Abby with an opportunity. Will they create a new life for themselves and add to the hurt around them, or do they no longer care enough even to rescue each other? A vicious war of the sexes played out in real time against a backdrop of terror.

Nihilistic yet brutally honest, The Mercy Seat is ultimately a story of two ordinary, imperfect people who, at a time of global turmoil, are still defined by their own inadequacies, fears and egos.

A controversial, American drama about morality, sex and national catastrophe.

This production provides opportunity for the first time collaboration between tríada theatre company, Artistic Director Fenia Gianni, and director/writer Sam Chittenden from Different Theatre.

Featuring the actors Miles Mlambo and Fenia Gianni.
