The winner of the Finborough Theatre’s ETPEP Award 2020, Playfight by Julia Grogan, directed by acclaimed director Blanche McIntyre will receive a streamed rehearsed reading on the Finborough Theatre YouTube channel for one week from Thursday, 1 April 2021 at 6.00pm to Thursday, 8 April 2021 at midnight as part of #FinboroughForFree
The streamed rehearsed reading of Playfight will star Robyn Cara (Trying, Ackley Bridge), Hannah Millward (Broadchurch, Bliss) and Helen Monks (Raised by Wolves, Upstart Crow).
Kiera, Zainab and Lucy are smart, outrageous and savvy. They’ve figured out that there are some things school sex ed lessons don’t cover. Now, as they grow from girls into women, they’re going to find the answers…
But nothing ever happens in their town, and they’re fifteen, so what do they know?
By turns funny and poignant, their experiences as they grow from girls into women shine a light on contemporary desire, the pain we feel and the lengths we go to…
Informed by the rise in violence in mainstream pornography and the ‘rough sex defence’, Playfight interrogates the dangerous reality of the hyper-sexualisation and exploitation of young people.
The streaming will also be available with subtitles on Scenesaver, and will also be free to view.
