Boiling Frog
  • Camden Fringe

"Boiling Frog" is a play written as a series of interlocking monologues, filmed using iPhones and then made into a digital offering for streaming. A young girl, Bella, has suffered PTSD trauma after witnessing the horrific Australian Black Summer Bushfires of 2019/20 on her Gap Year. She returns home to the UK to a changed landscape, both for herself and her family. How will she deal with her acute eco anxiety? How can she heal her psychological wounds? Will her family be supportive - or not? And can she ever re-establish her difficult relationship with her father, now that her world has been turned upside down? For Bella, things will never be the same again. The play deals with themes of the climate crisis and related mental health issues, politics and the state of the nation/world, mental health issues and eco anxiety, the food industry, veganism versus meat and dairy eaters, and Extinction Rebellion/protest movements.

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

Theatre MAD

Their UK and International grant-making strategy is based on five criteria that raise awareness, educate, and provide care and support for the most vulnerable in society. A host of fundraising events, including Bucket Collections, Late Night Cabarets, West End Eurovision, West End Bares and A West End Christmas continue to raise funds for projects both in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.
