Our new drug-drive play aimed at 16 to 21 year olds. The play is documentary - taken from interviews, telling the true story of four 18 year olds who after a weekend of drugs and sleep deprivation at a music festival, crashed horrifically on the motorway in 1997. Two of the victims died; one at the scene of the incident and one after being airlifted to Hospital.
This is APE's first play to incorporate video and animation during the performance to complement the acting, and is expected to tour for many years.
Pills Thrills @ Automobiles has been backed by the government, A.C.P.O. and debated in the House of Lords. APE was invited into the houses of parliament to discuss it.
One surviving passenger witnessed the whole tragic incident with
hardly a scratch; from the car crashing, through trying to
save her friends lives, and finally to the burying of two
of her friends. All at the age of 18. The other friend went into
a coma. On finally recovering she asked, "Why don't boys
want to kiss me anymore". Serious drug use (toxicology .42)
and sleep deprivation were the coroner's conclusion.
