After her boyfriend has his ice cream ruined by a passing cyclist, school-girl Katie (Catherine Lamb) finds herself on the wrong side of town, caught between her longing to be loved and the need to settle the score.

Jack Thorne (SkinsHarry Potter & the Cursed Child) has written a brilliantly dark and human piece with a rocketing pace. It’s funny, dangerous, and deeply compelling, with Catherine Lamb’s stunning performance at it’s centre.

She’s created a fully dimensional human being, bloodthirsty and complicated, with a rabbit-in-headlights vulnerability that’s utterly engrossing and often moving.

Caught in an overpoweringly masculine world, and unsure what to do with her life, we watch as the situation spirals into increasingly uncomfortable and confronting situations. Though it took a while for me to settle into the style, by the end of the play I found myself on the edge of my seat, emotional, and entirely invested.

Dynamically directed by Lucy Curtis, the play is full of movement and energy. Simply designed but to great effect, it’s a great story well-told. It bounces erratically between moments of triumph, shame, hilarity, and powerlessness.

It’s hard to look away.
