Fawkes Theatre Company is bringing the mysteries of mid-90s Motor City to the Annexe Theatre in their performance of Polaroid Stories by Naomi Izuka.
Director Thomas Wadley said Polaroid Stories is a combination of ancient Greek mythology with the dystopian vibe of Detroit in the 90s.
"It's about a group of runaway teenagers who are trying to find themselves, find their identity, navigate and life on the street," he said.
"She's [Izuka] taken these myths and she's blended it with real-life interviews with people living in Detroit in the 90s."

Costume Designer Tansy Gorman said the combination of the 90s and ancient Greek elements made for an interesting challenge.
"I tried to juxtapose what was on-trend and what was current in the mid-90s aesthetic while also staying true to what the colours of the characters are based on the myths," she said.
"We're kind of exploring and trying to have this hyper-real and stylised.
"Everything you can see has this larger-than-life but also has that dystopian element to it, we're trying to balance the mythology with verbatim theatre in the stories of the kids on the street."
Polaroid Stories will be playing at the Annexe Theatre from July 3 until July 6 at 7pm, tickets can be purchased at trybooking.com.
