DAMSEL PRODUCTIONS PRESENTs

GROTTY

BUNKER THEATRE

BY IZZY TENNYSON
DIRECTED BY HANNAH HAUER-KING

1-26 MAY 2018


No one goes to the circus to get laid, do they? ... I do.


Welcome to the desert. The London lesbian scene. A couple of little sad old basements that drip with sweat and piss. We sit, listening to second-hand pulsating noise coming from some gay boy night upstairs. And it’s a Wednesday. And it’s a night called the ‘Clam Jam’. Can you imagine being straight and going to a night called the ‘Cock and Hole’?

The women in black. The best tables are marked theirs by a crowd of empty prosecco bottles. They sit there in their uniformed black, a deep rich black only lots of money can buy... and they are looking at you.

They are not nice girls. But this is not a nice story. 

Grotty is a dark, savage, and unflinching exploration of lesbian subculture in London. Written by award-winning writer Izzy Tennyson (BruteRuntsCareer Boy) and directed by Hannah Hauer-King (Dry LandBruteFury), Damsel Productions presents this fierce new lesbian drama that takes no prisoners.
