Boilerhouse Theatre Company

Paul Pinson

Written by Spencer Hazel and presented by Boilerhouse Theatre Company, Seizer aimed to blur the lines between reality and fiction as a reality show host, played by Tam Dean Burn, forced characters with the same names as the actors playing them to relive traumatic events from their lives. Michelle relates a particularly gut-wrenching experience of sexual assault, shown in a video attached below.

Seizer was performed in the open air at The Old Quadrangle, Edinburgh University, as part of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
