Suzy Storck | Gate Theatre | 26 Oct-18 Nov
“Another unbearably hot evening, 8.54pm. Suzy Storck sits by the window, waiting for her husband to come home. Upstairs she can hear her children, yelling and clamouring at their bedroom door. She’s locked them in. Suzy realises for the first time she never chose any of this. She wonders how she ended up here. After tonight, she might never find her way out.” The UK premiere of a haunting new play by French playwright Magali Mougel. See the venue website here for details.

Bitched | Tristan Bates Theatre | 25 Oct-11 Nov

The pair’s luck seems like it might be changing when a pair of gallery owners decide to launch Rob’s career. But is all as it seems…? Written by Sharon Raizada,  inspired by her own tribulations as mother, and examining the idea of whether women can truly have it all. Head this way for more.
