“What if I could go back and make a different decision?” It’s a sentiment we must all have felt, and it’s at the centre of new piece The Chaos Theory, in which three women are given just that opportunity. Book your tickets now.
The plays, written by Robbi Stevens and staged by her company RAaW, runs from 16 to 20 July at The Vaults.
Three women caught in a cycle of destructive, unhealthy behaviour, which they realise is damaging those around them, want desperately to change their lives. For Becca, Caroline and Deanna it seems that wishing really can make it so and they find themselves transported back to the point at which their lives took their current path. They are given that second chance and each grab it with both hands. The Chaos Theory examines what might happen if those wishes could actually come true.
The Chaos Theory aims to raise awareness and provoke a response around the circles of destruction surrounding sexual assault, drug addiction, domestic abuse, poverty and mental health.
Isidora Fairhurst plays Caroline, with Shelley-ann Harrison as Becca and Yasemin Gava as Deanna. A RAaW regular, Fairhurst previously appeared in their productions of Through The Ages and Rise. Harrison, who boasts performances at Park Theatre and Canal Cafe Theatre, makes her RAaW debut in The Chaos Theory. Gava has starred in a number of RAaw films and in 2017 won The Human Rights prize for her humanitarian work in theatre.
Aleksandra Valcheva, Ata Teka, Kandice Morris, Kieran E Sims, Rory Kennedy and Sam Londt complete the cast.
Playwright Stevens also directs the production. Her previous plays include Money: Power: Love, 2028 (both Camden People’s Theatre), 180 (Leicester Square Theatre), Promiseland and Through the Ages (Theatro Technis).
