#FindYour Story

Orange Works is proud to present Locusts - a powerful new play exploring the impact of past traumas on present day life.  In a compelling mix of drama and black comedy, love, family and faith are put to the test in this beautifully written piece.
Locusts tells the story of Stephen, whose past resurfaces as Pete, a once-trusted church leader, reappears - asking for Stephen’s help in repeating damaging mistakes. Stephen’s partner, Jeff, is facing problems of his own, and knows nothing of this part of Stephen’s past. Now, they must all face the truth. 

The play masterfully weaves together real-life experiences of gay conversion therapy within an evangelical church into a gripping and sensitively performed fictional storyline.
Locusts received critical and audience acclaim at the 2023 Edinburgh Festival Fringe, including stellar four and five-star reviews:
Locusts shines a spotlight on a pressing issue while delivering a moving, warm, and humour-filled theatrical experience.
