“I could squeeze a bullet between those lips. Point first. Press it between those rosebud lips. Prise it between your pearly whites. Gently. I wouldn’t break a single tooth.”

Philip Ridley’s high impact two-character play brings the sizzle to Smock Alley Theatre this June. A couple navigate their way through the passionate battlefield of a relationship, leaving a blazing trail of destruction in their wake.

By turns raw, moving and lyrical, Tender Napalm paints the intimate portrait of two battling souls in Philip Ridley’s unique poetic style.

Under the direction of Sarah Finlay Tender Napalm is full of life and vitality, excellently devised as the action battles against the core darkness of the story… Tadgh and Dorrell both deliver sterling performances… the audience is treated to 80 minutes of intense performance that is both daring and delightful. – David Keane.

Ridley explores intense sexual and emotional connection, and evokes the processes of grieving and psychological healing without cliché or clumsy sentiment. It is heady, heart-stopping stuff; wildly intoxicating. – The Times

[blockquote_right]Inventive, risk taking . . . theatrical fire. – The Daily Telegraph[/blockquote_right]

A heightened love story filled with poetic intensity and a language that seethes and burns. This highly imaginative production from Good Buzz Productions is a must see.
