by David Bown

Presented by AlterEgo Theatre in association with Harrogate Theatre

In a backstreet garage in Sheffield the tensions are mounting. One minute Pete and his co-workers, Mick and Hud, are having a laugh fleecing Mondeo drivers, the next they’re engaged in a unspoken war. It’s got less to do with camshafts and more to do with Carol. Poor, desperate, manipulative Carol. Carol needs saving - mainly from herself - and money is needed for that. Pete hasn’t got any but Mick and Hud are planning a job, something big, something involving shooters and Pete can be in on it, if he’s got the nerve.

David Bown’s award-winning dark comedy Loaded was first performed at The Edinburgh Fringe in 1999. Like David’s previous play Stand, it received fantastic reviews in the national press and has since been toured in the North of England by Hull Truck and Reform Theatre Company. The November production at The Jack Studio is Loaded’s London premiere.

Press for previous production:

'New plays by unknowns don’t come more promising than this. The writing is volcanic. David Bown writes brilliantly about power, its swings and shifts and the way the person holding a gun to your head is sometimes the weakest in the room. Catch it if you can'
***** Lyn Gardner, The Guardian
