How far would you go to find the perfect cure?
In Wilderness Heights, an isolated region of the Pacific Northwest, ‘Dr’ Linda Hazzard opens her clinic to the public.
The public do not always survive…
In a chilling parallel to our modern world of influencers peddling protein shakes and diet pills, Fast is the true story of ‘Dr’ Linda Hazzard who advocated a fasting cure that gripped the press and divided a nation. Complex, beguiling and utterly driven, was Hazzard vilified as a woman in a man’s world or were there darker forces at play?
Award-winning producer Digital Drama is delighted to bring Fast to Park Theatre after sell out shows at the Brighton and Edinburgh Fringe.
Shortlisted for Best New Play Award 2018 by New Writing South.
‘Unmissable… this psychological thriller plays with your mind and emotions’ ★★★★ Broadway Baby
‘An intense dark drama, made all the more chilling due to the authenticity of its roots… entertaining and original…’ The Skinny
‘Highly recommended… a well-crafted tale told with skill and passion. Barton subtly reminds us that many of Hazzard’s ideas about cleansing the body have modern echoes in the more extreme diets peddled by modern Linda Hazzards...’ Fringe Review
