A Dystopian Play

Grym.Power: A Dystopian Play 

"Sacrifice is a word that has many meanings, but at its core, it represents a willingness to put the needs of others above one's own. It is a recognition that our individual desires and aspirations must sometimes be set aside for the greater good."
Principal Magistrate
Paradise Valley

Grym.Power, a gritty, dystopian thriller set in Paradise Valley. A community in chaos, plagued by economic struggles, political instability, and crime. In a bid to restore order, the authorities have introduced the Enforcement Lottery. Sanctioned enforcements are granted at random, but at whose cost? Winners become figures celebrated for their sacrifices; Paradise Valley reaps the rewards.

Enforcement Handbook Point 4.3 – Discussing your enforcement with anyone is STRICTLY PROHIBITED, as accepted in your Non-Disclosure Agreement.

Haunted by the memory of her enforcement, Gwen, relives her struggles daily, plagued by the true cost of this political warfare.

Grym.Power: A Dystopian Play has undertaken an R&D.
Supported by Make It!, Valleys Kids.


Grym.Power has undertaken an R&D supported by Make It! and Valley Kids. This support allowed me to focus on two areas of the piece that I believe are most important – The Sound and The Power.
