Day 6 - Soho Theatre

Day 6 of our 12 Plays of Christmas giveaway is brought to you by Soho Theatre who are offering a whopping five publications from their collections!

The One by Vicky Jones, winner of the 2013 Verity Bargate Award. Harry and Jo are up all night drawing the battle lines of their relationship with sex, violence and Wotsits. A viciously funny play, The One invites you into the world of a couple trapped in a destructive and violent cycle of love and lust.

Touch by Vicky Jones. Dee’s sexual escapades are messy and temporary – just like her shoebox London flat. New to the city and in a stopgap job, Dee has the chance to reinvent herself. But how can you change your life when you don’t know what you want? Welcome to the secret life of a thirty-three-year-old woman.

Fleabag by Phoebe Waller-Bridge. The funny, filthy, multi-award-winning monologue. This is a rip-roaring account of Fleabag, a twenty-something female struggling with being a woman today. This is the portrait of a girl who isn’t afraid to admit what she thinks is wrong with her. It’s like meeting a friend for an up-close and personal chat. This is comedy storytelling at its very best with all the unspoken nitty-gritty of real life.

Half Breed Natasha Marshall. Developed by Soho Theatre Writer’s Lab and Talawa Theatre Company and was nominated for Best new play in the 2017 UK Theatre Awards. Jazmin feels different. She doesn’t want to stay in the village. She doesn’t want to have a baby. She doesn’t want to laugh at racist jokes in the local pub. She’s got to get out. “My brain is just as confused as my skin. Should I stay here? Or should I try move to London? Stay. Go. Stay. Go. Stay. Go. Stay…”

Roller Diner by Stephen Jackson, another Verity Bargate Award winner! A theatrical jukebox with songs, sexual tension and failed dreams… all served with extra ketchup. Welcome to Eddie Costello’s Roller Diner – a faded Brummie beacon of a deep-fried American dream. The staff can’t skate and there’s a whiff of burnt sausages and disappointment. So when new waitress Marika arrives from somewhere foreign looking for a slice of a better life, hearts are set alight in a fiery recipe of love, jealousy and murder.
