‘You ever had this?
A Feeling?
Not a headache,
Not a,
Bellyache…

Just.’

Ollie is a man trapped in a world of recreational drug use and health issues, Blue is a woman trapped in our world. Together they share a feeling. They just haven’t figured out what that is.

In/Out (A Feeling) is an explosive exploration into London’s sex trade, told through the perspective of the consumer and supplier and supported by Unseen. A charity working towards a world without slavery and supporting those affected.

Andrew Maddock is a playwright. He created the Off-West End nominated ‘The Me Plays’ in 2014 and is a drama facilitator working with young people at risk.

Niall Phillips is the artistic director of Lonesome Schoolboy Productions and an associate director at the Drayton Arms Theatre.
