About this production

There are moments in life where people take a risk, stir up trouble or behave recklessly and the results can be profound, humorous and heart breaking. There are other moments when we just sit back, play with matches and watch the flames flicker.

Pitchy Breath Theatre Company present a series of short plays about risky decisions, troublemakers and the consequences of our actions.
