Fuel is a series of eight monologues for six characters, designed to be played by one actor.

Johnno, Fatty, Joey and Toad set out on the highway from Sydney together going to a party in Tuggeranong. They’ve got booze and some pills from the local drug dealer Thumper and everything seems set for a good night… except that Johnno can’t resist making an unscheduled stop to see his ex-wife, Toad’s sister, Simone where his temper gets the better of him.

A story of testosterone, alcohol and drug-fuelled revenge told from the different perspectives of the people caught up in it.

A tour de force for the right performer or a gritty, fast paced ensemble piece, Fuel would suit independent, student or community.
