Background


Originally seen as part of Vibrant 2019 - A Festival of Finborough Playwrights, Scrounger now receives its world premiere at the Finborough Theatre.

Synopsis


"And I don't know how to engage,

With people of the wrong side of justice,

That can't be bothered to tell their left

From what's right."


The first production of the Finborough Theatre's 40th anniversary year, the world premiere of Finborough Theatre Playwright in Residence and Olivier Award nominee Athena Stevens's new play.


On the streets of Elephant and Castle, everyone likes to make speculations about Scrounger.


She needs help, she must not be aware of the complexities of the world, she is sent from the demons to torture her mum … at least according to her Nigerian Uber driver.


Scrounger doesn't care.


A successful online personality, she's got more power from her bedroom than anyone on the Southwark estates could dream of.


She's educated, she's ballsy, and with a huge network of online allies, Scrounger is a woman who knows how to make change happen.


That is, until an airline destroys her wheelchair.


Inspired by real events and a lawsuit initiated by Stevens herself, Scrounger drives towards the realities of how Britain is failing its most vulnerable and the extreme cost paid by those seeking justice.
