Shards - Camden Fringe 2019
Camden People's Theatre
Shards is a 4 hander about love, loss, swing dancing and particle physics. It's 2011 and the Shard is half completed. Matt, a swing dancer and a nurse and Laura, a particle physicist, hunting for the Higgs Boson particle are negotiating the world of online dating desperately looking for a connection. On their first date in Borough High Street there is a spark but also catastrophe. We flit back and forth in time, with the Shard at different heights, witnessing the lives of our swing dancer and particle physicist at different points of momentum, collision and propulsion. Shards features live lindy hop dancing on stage throughout. It is a lively and entertaining play about love, loss and dedication.
