In shadow, 3 performers await their brief moment in the light.

Alfa, Beaty and Coral wait… wait while once more the action plays out elsewhere.

Often blisteringly funny, at times almost unbearably painful; peeling takes us backstage into a world of secrets, a world of stories about mothers and their children, a world where these fierce, intelligent and capable women are always the chorus and never the lead.

Following a critically acclaimed tour of Wales, peeling challenges you to experience theatre afresh. Whose stories do we tell? And who will be there to bear witness?

With interwoven BSL, live audio description and captions. Contains adult themes.

“Fiercely clever and uncompromising” The Guardian
“Extraordinarily poetic…earthy, acerbic wit” The Stage

“Heartwarming, funny, emotional” Entertainment South Wales

Peeling toured to: Arlington Arts, TheaterFestival Grenzenlos Kulture, Germany, Hertford Theatre,  Malvern Cube, The New Wolsey Theatre, Wolverhampton, The Welfare, Ystradgynlais, Courtyard Theatre, Hereford, Bedales Theatre, Jackson’s.
