Fixer by Lydia Adetunji

You expect me to be… what? One crooked man in an honest world will win, but one honest man in a crooked world, he is in trouble. The only sensible thing to do is to rise above one’s situation. Play the game and play better. 

An attack on an oil pipeline in Northern Nigeria. Journalists and PR consultants rush to the scene. Everyone wants control of the story and they’re prepared to pay. For Dave and Laurence, this could be the exclusive that makes their careers. For Chuks, their fixer, the stakes are even higher.

Fixer is an intelligent and savagely funny play about oil geopolitics and the price of human life by “one of the brightest new stars in British political theatre." (The Observer).

Fixer was presented at Ovalhouse in 2011 as part of the London via Lagos season.

CAST Damola Adelaja, Alex Barclay, Robert Bowman, Babajide Fado, Jennifer Jackson, Nick Oshikanlu, Richard Pepple | DIRECTION Dan Barnard & Rachel Briscoe | DESIGN Chris Gylee | LIGHTING DESIGN Arnim Friess | COMPOSER Richard Hammarton 

Fixer was supported by the Arts Council England, Gibbs Charitable Trust, Morel Charitable Trust and Unity Theatre Trust.

An exquisitely crafted play that succeeds in scrutinising a host of contemporary issues without ever seeming dense or worthy, remaining utterly gripping throughout.
