PETAL

Omnibus Theatre, May 25th - 29th 2022

“Beware that, when fighting monsters, you yourself do not become a monster…” ― Nietzsche

Petal, a young contestant on the popular reality TV show Love Loft, dreams of success. But as swiftly as fame propels her into the limelight, trolls crawl out from the darkness to torment her.

As Petal’s plight is plastered all over the news, her sister Mina vows to find justice. Most of the trolls have disappeared. Except one. As the suspect is dragged into the open, is Mina herself becoming the bully she so despises?

A ferocious return by the company that brought you the critically acclaimed Baaba’s Footsteps (VAULT 2020), Petal explores the dark world of online hate and asks, isn’t it about time that trolls paid their toll?
