There’s actually no such a thing as good publicity, there’s just planned and unplanned, and this is very much the latter.

YouTuber turned actor Arthur Moses wins an Olivier Award, and moments later goes on to drunkenly deliver the most offensive, outrageous and profanity laden speech in the ceremony’s history.

His publicists Gracelyn, Ruchi and Danica have quite a morning ahead of them.

They’ll need to apologise on his behalf all whilst fielding calls, defusing social media, stamping out print, handling the talent, licking SOLT’s wounds and if Arthur could stop posting on Instagram for a second that would be great.

CUTTINGS is a satirical look at public perceptions, fandom & fame and what it means to be ‘sorry’ in the 21st Century. Relish Theatre’s previous work includes Unicorn (Theatre N16), A Matter Of Life And Debt (Edinburgh Fringe) and the podcast Theatre Feuds.

Praise for previous work:

★★★★ “A multifaceted piece of theatre that keeps its audience thoroughly engaged throughout.” Theatre Weekly on UNICORN
★★★★ “Unpretentious, well-judged, engaging performance, that finds just the right pace and tone”
ActDrop on UNICORN
★★★★ “The most watchable absurdist play I have ever seen” Ed Fringe Review on A MATTER OF LIFE AND DEBT

Lad and Lass are on the run. They’re squatting in a bedsit on one of Hull’s roughest estates and living hand to mouth on a diet of roll-ups, vodka and Cup-a-Soup. Caged by circumstance and warped by their own toxic relationship, will they ever be able to escape and survive?

Jack and Ellie wanted a family. Then one day, they lost their child and their reality changed forever. Whilst one hides in a caravan, the other visits them and together they tell each other magnificent stories. But will these stories spiral them further into grief or somehow bring them back? 

blood orange

11 & 12 Aug

When fiercely independent female doctor Amy receives a case of a boy with cancer, it propels her back to her childhood and past traumas. She’s confronted by her loss and wants her career to provide the answer, but is it time to take a great leap and fight her demons?

8 & 9 Sept

Elise and Sirenna have written a play! They have nabbed a great space! They have secured financial backing! They have written a marketing blurb!

They are still not taken seriously.

A play about two women writing a play about two women writing a play about two women writing a play.

call me fury

17 Sept - 5 Oct

“The fire of fear is the only flame that burns bright.”

CALL ME FURY is about The Salem Witch Trials. Sort of. A feral scream of rage, this play is a commentary about sexual politics and feminism today – set to live folk music.

Like a spell: a good spell.” Lyn Gardner
