About this event

When Josh encounters a stranger passed out on the footpath, he does the decent thing and helps the man out. Surely the stranger's obsession with Josh is just due to gratitude. It couldn't be anything more sinister. Could it?

As the stranger's obsession grows, Josh is faced with mounting pressures in his personal life: from his demanding girlfriend, strained friendships, and his family, and he is forced to choose between them. All while combating a stalker who seems to know far too many details about Josh's life. Things he's never told anyone.

'Shivered' is a thrilling debut stage production about obsession, regret and trying desperately to do the right thing in life. Whatever that means.
