Catch one of the most exciting psychological thrillers in recent years, as it comes to London’s West End for a limited run this season! Follow Linda Hazzard’s life-changing cure that won her widespread media attention and left the nation divided!

Why Watch Fast

Based on a true story, Fast follows Linda Hazzard’s intriguing cure that gripped the whole of America. The production shines a light on those who continue to be in search of a miracle drug or tablet that can cure them of all maladies, even today.

Kate Barton’s production was critically acclaimed during its run at the Edinburgh and Brighton Fringe Festivals in 2018. Fast is all set to make its West End debut following its sell-out runs and promises to keep the audience second-guessing the next scene every step of the way! The set design is quite minimal and imparts a rather sinister feeling to the audience. Despite being gloomily illuminated, Barton utilizes shadows and projections to her advantage. The lighting design is dark and eerie, giving the audience the feeling of being seated in a horror film. The storyline is interspersed with humour at just the right moments, providing some much-needed levity. Character development is excellent, and despite being frightening, the main character is both intriguing and incredibly melancholic. An intense and dark drama, the fact that Fast is based on a true story makes it all the more chilling.

The Story

Dr. Linda Hazzard opens up a quaint clinic in Olalla, Washington State in the year 1910. She believes that diseases and health issues can be cured with the help of certain fasting techniques. Two English patients, Claire Williamson and Dora Williamson come to Linda’s clinic in search of a cure. Claire is suffering from a red and sore eye, while Dora suffers from a ‘tilted uterus’.

Once the sisters enter the sanatorium, events take a dark turn. Separated, the two sisters are given restricted food rations and a series of weird treatments begin. Is Linda playing God with their health, or is there something more to her eerie treatment methods? Will the two sisters be cured of their ailments after their stay at Linda’s clinic?
