Presented by Theodora van der Beek

Trapped in a tower in a world of pink, a YouTuber princess is given a box and told never to open it because it contains all the evils of the universe. Isolated from the world, she is plagued by weird, sexual dreams and the unsettling idea that perhaps there could be more….

Mixing classical references from Greek mythology and fairy tales with the modern world of Instagram, pop music & #MeToo, Drink Your Pink explores the limitation of strict gender constructs, and the frustration of being confined in a box too small.

“Theodora van der Beek is a brilliantly understated comic writer and performer who draws on the work of Andy Warhol and Lady Gaga, as well as the punk spirit of Deborah Harry and the Sex Pistols.” – The Scotsman

Supported by Brighton Dome.

This production contains references to drug/alcohol addiction, suicide and eating disorders.

About the artist

Theodora van der Beek makes theatrical performances that challenge the gender binary and explore the mechanics of power and privilege, by calling upon and celebrating the wild abandon that exists inside us all.
