- VAULT Origins Award - 2018
Young men are dying and everyone assumes they're just casualties of London's chemsex scene. Everyone, that is, but Anthony, who is determined to investigate.
Christopher Adams' play Tumulus is a chilling, queer play-noir set amongst the shadowy hills of Hampstead Heath.
It was first performed as part of the 2018 VAULT Festival, London, where it was the winner of a VAULT Origins Award for outstanding new work from the theatre programme.
Also available in the collection Plays from VAULT 3.
'Christopher Adams's script is taut and propulsive with plenty of social satire'Guardian
'Well-crafted and engaging… the tone and atmosphere of noir as a storytelling technique are a poignant tool to explore the moral ambiguity, fatalism, and pathos of the subject matter'LGBTQ Arts Review
'A neat piece of writing [that] simultaneously supplies a nagging study of addiction and a compelling cross-section of the capital's active gay community… Christopher Adams' fast-moving, free-flowing, three-man play showboats a gritty authenticity'The Stage
