‘She just needs to understand that it’s not her fault, that she’s not to blame, that she’s not a slut.’

Three women and two men swim in shame.
Everyone’s exposed.
Everyone wants revenge.
No one’s talking about it.

Five candid stories about revenge porn and all its many victims. Blush is a slap in the face and a call to arms.

Written by Charlotte Josephine and presented by Snuff Box Theatre (the team behind award-winning Bitch Boxer), in association with Sphinx Theatre.

“Both actors are electrifying, vigorously physical and their inhabitation of the characters pin-sharp… A pitch-perfect illustration of the implicit selectivity of male privilege.” ★★★★ The Scotsman

“Vital theatre… A harsh dissection of online consent presented in a vital sweat-box of a two-hander”★★★★The Stage

“Angry, infectious and without doubt one of the most energetic at the fringe” ★★★★★ What’s On Stage 

“An absolute gem” ★★★★ Ed Fringe Review

“Fast-paced [and] razor-sharp” ★★★★ Reviews Hub

“Blush is evocative, hard-hitting and deeply honest in its message – a must-see that will leave you with chills” Edinburgh Festival Magazine
