Presented by Sarah Richardson

Lucy is unassuming, average and awkward. And, when it comes to sex, what she lacks in experience, she makes up for in curiosity. That’s all set to change. On a night of firsts, she opens the door to a world of relationships and sex that she had only ever dreamt about. But is the reality all she had hoped it would be? GirlPlay is an exploration of love and sex spun out in slam.

Supported by an Arts Council England Lottery Grant and Culture Ireland.

Winner of Best Digital Experience, Stockholm Fringe, 2020

Nominated for Spirit of the Fringe Award, [email protected] Season 2, 2021
