The atrocity triggers a journey of descent in which Vida risks self-destruction in a bid to confront the rise in bigotry and fascism. Just as she feels most alone, she discovers there are others who feel the same as her – and now the deadly potential of their combined potency is about to be unleashed.

Landmines is the most recent stage work from Phil Davies whose debut play Firebird opened at the Hampstead Theatre before transferring to the Trafalgar Studios. Landmines sees The Bridge Company return to Ovalhouse following the success of their 2016 show ‘Decades’.

The show is produced through the BRIT School’s unique training initiative, The Bridge Company, which creates and presents dynamic, socially relevant work in a professional context.
