Many teenagers have a complicated relationship with sex: fascination, fear, awe, disgust… Sex is never simple, yet in the mainstream imagination is reduced to a single element.

From admitting defeat to a tampon, to watching bad porn with her best friend’s horrid boyfriend, Skin a Cat follows Alana on her tender and fumbling sexual odyssey. With a kaleidoscope of off-kilter characters, the play interrogates the virginity myth and the fixation with penetrative sex, bringing to light many unspoken anxieties and marginalised experiences.

Skin a Cat was nominated for four Off-West End awards including Best New Play.

Duration: 1 hour 20mins with no interval

Instead, the room is catapulted into farcical chaos as a stern Guardian critic exposes the public disgrace that brought down lead-actor and Emmerdale-star, Seba...

  • The Ruling Class

    Tue 14 - Sat 18 May

    A 1960s manor living room is flooded with light. Surrounded by Victorian values, the audience is suddenly greeted by a magnanimous hippy – floating and grazing around the upper-classes living beyond the age in which they belong. He’s likeable, witty, and carefree. He also thinks he’s the Lord God reincarnate. The Ruling Class is a dark, witty, and satirical comedy that probes the hypocri...
