Fight Direction  by

Luke Barnes

Thin walls, damp, poisonous mould; it isn’t perfect, but for best friends Callum and Henry its home. But their lives are changed forever with the arrival of a demolition notice and a well-dressed stranger.


A traditional play about untraditional people, Haemosporidian is a darkly comedic depiction of the realities of gentrification.
