Description

"He can't speak.” “What, at all?”
Boy meets girl. Boy can't talk to girl.
And a small asteroid has hit the capital city.

It was ridiculous. Impossible. But it happened. As London adjusts to life after an unthinkable disaster, in a small town far away, a young man called Vin finds he can no longer speak. Is it shock? Grief? Or something else?

While Vin's mum Vicky struggles with a loss of her own, his friend Rach is determined to help him find a way out of silence. But when Rach's family take in a charismatic and articulate survivor, who thinks talking – or even singing – about your suffering is the way to heal, Vin's plight is suddenly eclipsed...

In a world that celebrates self expression, what happens to those who can't express themselves? And what lengths will we go to to make sense of our sadness?

LAVA is written by award-winning playwright James Fritz (Four Minutes Twelve SecondsParliament Square, Ross & Rachel). Sharply funny and deeply moving, LAVA is a tender, necessary story about friendship and human connection in the face of the inexplicable.
