Background


The first major revival of Lucy Prebble's debut play: a devastatingly and disturbingly funny exploration of an unlikely friendship, our desire to connect, and the limits of empathy.

Oscar Toeman, runner up, JMK award 2019, directs.


His previous work includes Actually (Trafalgar Studios) and After October (Finborough Theatre).


POST SHOW TALK - Thu 6 Feb.


Synopsis


I like the internet.


I like that way of talking to people.


It's honest.


It's a place where people are free to say anything they like.


And most of what they say is about sex.


Dani is 17.


She's looking to meet someone honest and direct.


What she finds is a man twice her age who thinks she's an 11-year-old boy.


- I'm sorry I'm not the freak show you expected.


- We're on the same side of the bars I think.
