‘Look what you have to do to make them like you’ Suzie, Edwina and Lucy have moved to a new school in a new town. Three very different sisters who will do anything to fit in and yet are desperate to be noticed. But how far will they go to break out of the roles in which they’ve been cast and will they ever be able to truly change their lives when they’re swimming against the tide?
‘Your appeal is that you look piss ordinary. You’re not ugly and you’re not a Kardashian. You look like a normal person. A normal person that makes porn ...’ Nicola Barker is in trouble. A video has been made, and she is the unwitting star. In a bid to stop the footage being used against her, Nicola makes a snap decision: to post it online herself. What started as a drunken night in a dirty club ends with a unique business opportunity for Nicola and her two sisters, changing the meaning of ‘amateur porn’ forever. A darkly comic new play from the writer/director team behind A First World Problem, this is a blistering study of our attitudes to porn, and the women who make it for themselves.
Meet Leah and Chris; raised on Harry Potter, New Labour and a belief that one day they would be as ‘special’ as their parents promised. But what happens when those dreams don’t become reality? All We Ever Wanted Was Everything is a three-act anthem set across three decades, from 1997’s Cool Britannia to 2007’s Broken Britain and 2017’s Brexit Britain. It’s about the world we inherited and the one we’re leaving behind. It’s a gig that tells a story of a million beating hearts and an asteroid with other plans.
