THE SLUTS OF SUTTON DRIVE
Presented by Vicky Graham Productions, the Finborough Theatre and Arch 468
World Premiere | Finborough Theatre 24 June - 9 July 2012
“Would you ever want to sit with me in the dark? Just sit with the lights out, barely even touching, maybe not touching at all, and just listen to me breathe?”
Everybody wants a piece of Stephanie Schwartz. Her son’s demanding nuggets, her boyfriend wants her to wax and her best friend’s taking her to a stripping class. Now there’s a rapist on Sutton Drive, an obscene caller invading her home and a portal to hell beneath her sofa. How far must she go to make it all stop? And how far is too far?
A heart-breaking, taboo-busting black comedy by Joshua Conkel, “the most important queer playwright of his generation” (Doric Wilson)
" Things eventually go with a bang in Rebecca Atkinson-Lord's production, which makes the most of the wise-cracking comedy and boasts a fantastic performance from Georgia Buchanan as the increasingly unhinged heroine.."
