Park Theatre has announced casting for the compelling and chilling true story, FAST, which runs from Tuesday 15th October to Saturday 9th November 2019.
Written by Kate Barton and directed by Kate Valentine, FAST is the psychological and suspenseful true story of Linda Hazzard, who advocated a controversial fasting cure that gripped the press and divided a nation.
Caroline Lawrie stars at Hazzard, alongside Jordon Stevens and Natasha Cowley as her patients Claire and Dora Williamson, and Daniel Norford as Journalist Horace R. Cayton Jr.
How far would you go to find the perfect cure?
In an isolated region of the Pacific Northwest, ‘Dr’ Linda Hazzard opens her clinic to the public.
But, the public do not always survive.
Director Kate Valentine comments:
“Hooked on Internet influencers, we now risk trusting people who peddle pills and potions and can lose sight of the perils to our health when adopting extreme regimes. Fast depicts a remarkable woman who uses her powers of persuasion to lure patients, desperate for any miracle cure. Laced with suspense and psychological drama, Fastexplores the true crime of a woman determined to prove herself to a world challenging her methodologies.”
