"Writer and director Peter Bramley has concocted an enthralling story to keeps his audience genuinely gripped"
CROYDON/ WIMBLEDON GUARDIAN
The Fumidor tells a cautionary tale of misplaced morality, hypocrisy, the dangers of excess and the search for love. The terrifying legend of a murderer convinces a small town that they should become radically sin-free. When a stranger comes to town, bringing irresistible temptations with him, the facade of the pure and chaste inhabitants begins to crumble, revealing a painfully dark secret.
Developed from previous versions "Oink" and "The Tale of Rancor" with kind support from the International Youth Arts Festival, Kingston. It opened at the Barn Theatre Rose Bruford College, then transferred to IYAF Kingston and played for 27 performances at the Warehouse Theatre in Croydon.
