Careless
  • Vault Festival

Careless follows best friends: Sam, a Care Assistant, and Bryony, a struggling Actor. Their working days couldnt be more different. Its Bryonys 25th birthday. They are suddenly faced with truths neither of them can avoid. Careless examines the complexities of female friendship when worlds collide under the pressures of working in social care. Will their friendship survive the night? Written Off Theatre was established in 2021 by Emma Franois and Eva Tritschler. Both whom were brought up by NHS workers, they believe in the value and importance of key workers, both creatives want to focus on representing key worker voices in their writing. After a sold out run at The Hope Theatre, an Edinburgh Festival Fringe debut followed. Careless is for those with a sense of compassion and of course humour. "A sharp and witty play which explores the concept of what it means to care" (LondonTheatre1)

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.
