    A young writer encounters an older director on an empty stage. She wants awe. She wants blood. She wants to change the shape of the world. Beautifully yearning and uncompromisingly savage, this is theatre with a new set of teeth.

    THE WASP

    Heather and Carla haven't seen each other in years. Carla lives a down and out hand-to-mouth existence while Heather looks like she has it all. During an unexpected catch up, Heather presents Carla with a bag of money and a deadly proposition. At once thrilling and darkly funny, ‘THE WASP’ written by Morgan Lloyd Malcolm is a sharp reminder that if you don’t deal with your past you should expect it to deal with you.
