Freight by Kate Tiernan
Set in an American train freight carriage where two characters meet for the first time surrounded by a cargo of salt. This play is about journeys, borders and territories, geographically and emotionally.
Freight explores themes of tense human relationships and the power struggles at play through political barriers to social mobility and human trafficking. Lyrical and sharp, this raw text cuts into the power play of words, wisdom, desire and the filth we'd rather forget.
Containing elements of verbatim, scriptural and lyrical references, this experimental play is restless and refuses to be pinned down. Performed in real time.
