Kill Jill! (Members) £6.95 £6.60

Big Brother meets Kill Bill meets Jack (of Beanstalk fame) meets Tony Martin. . . Mix these together to create Kill Jill. exploring the hot topical issues of homeowners defending themselves, and asks how far can Reality TV be allowed to go?

Jack, has been repeatedly robbing George at the top of the beanstalk. His final visit is different in two ways.
    First: with Jack, is his girlfriend, Jill, (of course) who is co-incidentally the latest victim in Reality Lottery, a fictional TV transmission where people are forced (selected by a Lottery) to participate in a Reality Show, a futuristic form of National Service& to entertainment.
    Secondly George has chosen this day to lay in wait for the young thieves armed with a shotgun. The ending is suitably Tarantinoesque.

Kill Jill raises issues of rights and responsibilities (Jack, Giant, Jill and the also TV crew filming the reality show). Kill Jill is full of imaginative techniques and makes for a thoroughly entertaining Theatre production.

Mark Wheeller is teacher and youth theatre leader in Southampton and is a well established writer of plays for young people.
