June 2014, London. A stab, a tweet and a social-media storm rip the sultriness of the hottest summer on record since 1976.
Two young heroes worlds apart gravitate towards each other against the will of alluring internet chimeras. Two epic journeys set out in the storm of urban regeneration. Will their hands touch?
Inspired by a real incident, #Haters tells about impulsive acts, opt-outs and the changing faces of our neighbourhoods in the wake of urban regeneration. It’s about opportunities, fate and values. It’s about a world that changed suddenly right before your eyes and you could only witness.
Expect spoken words and outlandish sounds of every-day dreams. Expect bitter-sweet humour, tenderness and compassion. Expect to change your mind.

ABOUT ODD EYES
Odd Eyes Theatre nurtures beauty in diversity. We make theatre that tells stories about people standing out from the crowd. We look at the world from different angles and use theatre to share unique point of views with equally unique audiences.
Odd Eyes Theatre promotes communication across cultures. By cultural groups we mean people from diverse socio-economic backgrounds as much as those from different nationalities and ethnic groups. We open dialogue through theatre productions, professional development and community programmes.
