A young writer and a director meet on an empty stage. She’s furious about his latest play: it’s lazy, sexist, profane. He gets a kick out of arguing: he flirts with her, condescends to her, even offers her a job. But she wants more than he can possibly offer, with his small stage and smaller imagination. She wants to change the world. And the world is about to change around her.

Following its incendiary London premiere in 2018, Ella Hickson’s provocative, unpredictable play is unlike anything you’ve seen before. In a new production led by award-winning director Sophie Roberts ('The Wolves', 'Hir', 'Peter and the Wolf'), walls collapse and stories transform without warning, in this genre-bending, gravity-defying modern masterpiece about the dirty business of making art.


"Electrifying... very punk rock, a thrillingly uninhibited rally against the establishment." – Time Out London
