    ‘Being one of four should mean less pressure.’

    Relationships can be messy. Especially when there’s four of you.

    Freya loves Dee. Dee loves Craig. Craig loves Freya. And everyone loves Amber. Together they attend fabulous parties and host intimate dinners. They have left their pasts behind and fully embraced their new lives in an open queer utopia.

    Until one explosive party, when everything falls apart. 

    In CHOOSE YOUR FIGHTER, you’ll become complicit in one character’s side of the story, viewing the world, this relationship, and that night exclusively through their eyes. As the evening unfolds, you’ll learn that behind the characters’ love and care for each other are hidden secrets and lies... and it won’t be long before they start spilling out.

    Immerse yourself in the story as you are given headphones and become privy to one character's perspective, experiencing their thoughts, emotions, and secrets in real-time.

    Votive Theatre’s new drama explores four perspectives of the same story, tying you to your fighter’s fate until the bittersweet end.

    Written by Katrina Bennett & Directed by Amy Crighton.

    Supported by Barrel Organ Theatre, Arts Council England, and the Jerwood New Work Fund

    "“I love the mess and the heart and the courage and the queer of it. It rolls around my brain for the hours afterwards. I’d choose these fighters again and again"
    Sean Linnen, Director
    "A brilliant, really exciting and energetic play [...] I loved the complicity of listening into one characters’ thoughts and feelings and how that transcends into the group conversation and the group dynamic"
    Rohan Gotobed, Director
    "“I felt like I had a responsibility to my person, I’m going to support you, I’m going to be with you"
