Three fast-paced, funny stories about consumer culture
 

by Billie Collins

Winner of New Play Commission Scheme

(Writers’ Guild of Great Britain)

 

Alice is done with fast fashion.

Ben can’t stop buying trainers.

And Charlie just wants to sell out… one organ at a time.

 

In an age of retail therapy, climate crisis and click and collect - how does our 'stuff' define us? And have we reached peak stuff?

Award-winning theatre company ThickSkin have teamed up with local playwright Billie Collins (Too Much World At Once and BBC's Malory Towers) to produce one of the most visually thrilling and inventive shows you will see this year.

 

Using live drumming and spectacular video design, this is a timely show for anyone who has ever made an ill-fated impulsive purchase!  Directed by ThickSkin’s Neil Bettles (How Not To Drown, Frantic Assembly’s The Unreturning and Disney’s Bedknobs and Broomsticks), Peak Stuff is a tale for modern times.

Touring the UK from February 2024.

Age Guidance: Suitable for age 14 +.

Running time: Approximately 75 minutes, there is no interval.

Advisory notes: Contains occasional strong language, flashing images and loud music.
