"BLANKFACE is a spectacular thought-provoking piece displaying racial and political themes linked closely to youth culture and knife crime. The innovative theatre production from London uses movement and artistic language to illustrate the unspoken issues in society today. The story follows a group of black youths abducted by a white supreme scientist, who aims to control and brainwash the individuals by infecting black-on-black violence, in order to regain dominance within his race. This piece is the most important work I have ever produced because of the relevance to the times we live in." - Creative Director, Maxwell Chartey

The burgeoning party scene of East London hides a dark secret: a swathe of young men dying unexpectedly, with whispers of an unnamed killer.

In the midst of all this, Robert is grieving the death of his father. He desperately wants to be a better person, but trapped in a pattern of substance abuse and infidelity, he has a lingering fear that he will never find love and acceptance. Unexpectedly, his boyfriend Sergio proposes, compelling Robert to turn his back on addiction and self-sabotage - before he destroys this final chance at happiness.

But first, he must confront a truth buried deep within his subconscious, something he himself doesn't yet fully understand.

This brand new piece of theatre tackles the misconceptions around gay culture and promiscuity. Something far more ominous is driving men like Robert to the point of self-destruction...
