Relax. Breathe the fresh air. Get in touch with nature. Run for your life.

Written and directed by Amy May Nunn, Menace Ridge is a one-act queer thriller-comedy, exploring the threats constantly pushing in on womxn and queer couples when we venture outside of our safe zones.

Twenty-something couple Tess and Maud are off on a camping weekend for some much-needed respite from their busy lives. But with a rogue animal on the loose, ominous weather warnings and a strange man hanging around their campsite, what begins as an idyllic couple getaway quickly descends into the trip from hell.

Menace Ridge explores the ‘couple camping getaway’ as a rite of passage. Charming images of couples in matching Kathmandu jackets smiling triumphantly on a hike are deeply linked to our vision of a fulfilling and adventurous life. But for queer couples partaking in this rite of passage, the experience can be vastly different from the heteronormative tale we’re so often told...

Performed by two actors and using raw storytelling, Menace Ridge will take audiences on a heightened, irreverent and guttural adventure they won’t soon forget.
