by Joshua Conkel

World Premiere first produced by Vicky Graham Productions at the Finborough Theatre June – July 2012

Everybody wants a piece of Stephanie Schwartz. Her son’s demanding nuggets, her boyfriend wants her to wax and her best friend’s taking her to a stripping class. Now there’s a rapist on Sutton Drive, an obscene caller invading her home and a portal to hell beneath her sofa. How far must she go to make it all stop? And how far is too far?

“a working-class version of Desperate Housewives meets Thelma and Louise… fantastic performance… terrific lines” Guardian
“quite unlike any other play you’re likely to have seen this year. Conkel is an exciting discovery, and credit is due to Atkinson-Lord and producer Vicky Graham for taking a risk on a virtual unknown this side of the Atlantic” Curtain Up
★★★★★ “not to be missed” Fringe Review
★★★★★ “bold, brash and very funny… straddles the perfect line between hilarious and horrifying” SoSoGay
★★★★ “moments of genius… works wonders […] all the way to the end” WhatsOnStage
“a hoot and a half… deliciously dark and comic” A Younger Theatre
