Getting dumped is like a mountain, full of setbacks and revenge cock…wait, what?   

GETTING OVER EVEREST is a comedic look at the peril of being dumped. Written and performed by Natasha Santos (Sh**faced Shakespeare, Leicester Square Theatre.  Marlborough Road, Hen & Chickens Theatre) and directed by Katherine Timms (The Plough, The Jack Wills Young Brit Awards). 

Defined by her relationship status, Libby knows little else. When Rob Everest unexpectedly decides to cut ties, she spirals into an unannounced depression as she tries to find her feet outside of a 10 year relationship. With the support of her friend Steph and the man from the bar, outspoken and explicit Libby attempts to find out who she is and what life has to offer. 

GETTING OVER EVEREST is a unique female-led production combining monologue storytelling, ensemble, character comedy and the ultimate breakup playlist.

Female-led RoundPeg Theatre brings Anthony Neilson’s controversial play to London for the first time in 15 years. A female pornographer comes face to face with a censor – the man whose job it is to determine whether her work can see the light of day.

A tender, graphic exploration into sex, pleasure and taboo.

*a great big sigh*

7 & 8 July

The world outside is (probably) falling apart. Walter has no friends and Tina desperately wants to survive: nothing could possibly be spookier. In this riotous comedy we see these two strangers trapped with nothing but a few clues they must solve together in order to escape this flabbin’ heckin’ basement!

it’s a playception

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.
