Easy


Alice would give anything for something magical to happen to her. But she's shy, has no idea how to contour and the last thing she loved was a roast potato. She feels ordinary. Unremarkable. Unpopular. Until Jamie from Maths messages her.

Background


Easy is a powerful new play by Amy Blakelock, exploring what happens when we combine social media, love island ideals, Snapchat and teenage insecurity.


An intimate portrait of adolescence today, Easy asks us - why is it so hard to believe we're good enough as we are?


Easy has been developed in consultation with teachers and teenagers and free PSHE workshops are available for school and youth group bookings.


Workshops are supported by the leading UK sexual health charity Brook.


The performances on Tuesday 5th & Wednesday 6th November are previews and prices are £10.00 (full), £9.00 (conc.) & £8.00 (Southwark Residents)


Please note Easy contains swearing, descriptions of sexual activity and images of sexual activity being shared without consent.

Synopsis


My best friend Meg actually lost it last week, to her boyfriend Amir.

Apparently he lit candles.

Magical, was the word she used.


Alice would give anything for something magical to happen to her. But she's shy, has no idea how to contour and the last thing she loved was a roast potato.


She feels ordinary. Unremarkable. Unpopular.


Until Jamie from Maths messages her.


Finally, something is about to happen to Alice.


Something big. Something she won't ever forget. Something she never expected.


And the whole school knows.
