Roadkill

Stratford East, Theatre Royal, Gerry Raffles Square, London

Roadkill starts and ends at Theatre Royal Stratford East and takes audiences on a journey by minibus to a house somewhere in East London to tell the powerful story of the terrifying complexities of sex trafficking today, based on real experiences.

The award-winning Roadkill comes to London after sold-out runs in Paris and Edinburgh and combines direct, chilling performances with video and animation.

Audiences come face to face with the brutal and hidden truth behind the newspaper headlines as they share the intimate, harrowing details of a young woman trapped in a living nightmare.

Roadkill contains strong language and adult scenes. It is suitable for theatregoers aged 15 and older.
