Broken stories of forgotten people by Daniel Keene.

Trapped by circumstance and poverty, exploited and disposable, a group of forced labourers risk everything to break the bonds that imprison them. Each has a different story to tell, but all their stories are broken. Trapped in a cycle of unrelenting labour, cut off from their past and uncertain of their future, eight individuals must discover their collective strength. Perhaps together they can create a new beginning.

Catch on fire and people will come for miles to see you burn.
– John Wesley.

Content warning: WILD CHERRIES contains references to sexual assault and childhood trauma.

Daniel Keene is a dangerous playwright. He works right on the moral edge.
