Fast Track

2- 4 October 2014 // The North Wall, Oxford

I don’t know you. I know nothing about you. You’re just a stranger. All that I have in common with you is that I sat on this bench.”

Six characters, one park: Fast Track follows six young city-dwellers whose lives collide on one life-changing day.

Characters run, cycle, walk and hurtle past each other. Strangers confess, love and judge each other. They have one thing in common: they are all stuck in a relationship – a relationship with money. They are trying to find ways to handle it: save it, steal it, exchange it, make it or get rid of it.

And as the sun sets and night falls, the park becomes an altogether darker place…

Pulsing with energy and dark humour, Fast Track exposes the beating heart of the city and the challenges faced by those that live in it. The North Wall is proud to present the premiere of this bold new play from one of Britain’s brightest up-and-coming playwrights.

Featuring live music composed and performed by Wild Swim’s Carlos Posada & Jamie Jay.

This production is kindly supported by Arts Council England and the Garfield Weston Foundation.



"Physical and visually innovative...some outstanding moments of theatricality. I was on the edge of my park bench seat throughout!"
