“It’s important that we tell you that we have no idea what we’re doing.”

There’s a sense of desperation in the air as Charlotte, Danny and Ted meet up in London; recalling their youth and the optimism they used to wear. In an unforgiving city, they’ve found themselves getting lost in a wasted scene – but it’s not too late to change, right?


Turning traditional theatre on its head with scenes of slam poetry and an on-stage DJ, Wasted explores the dissatisfaction of modern life in a radical fashion.


Wasted is a bold and contemporary piece of storytelling that demands to be read, programmed and seen. Telling the story of three 30-somethings worrying their life is getting away on them, it offers up a startling combination of spoken word poetry, hip hop and clubbing culture. A play for our times.”
