North Yorkshire, 1986.

Megan and Deborah live alone on their farm in the Yorkshire Dales. What was once their home has now become their only refuge from an increasingly dangerous outside world. They have their farm, their food and each other.

But the appearance of a young boy quickly throws their fragile harmony into a dark, downward spiral. As the days grow warmer the pair begin to pull apart at the seams, and the cost of survival is chillingly laid bare.

Kitchen sink drama meets post-apocalyptic horror, The Hunger is an original play about morality and motherhood at the end of the world.

This play features very strong language, disordered eating, alcoholism, domestic abuse and cannibalism, as well as references to death, violence and suicide.
