Good Girl

Winner of Voice’s Pick of the Fringe and Funny Women’s Best Show award, the exceptional debut play from Soho Theatre Writers’ Lab alumna Naomi Sheldon comes to Soho Theatre On Demand, filmed at the Old Red Lion Theatre in December 2017 before its Trafalgar Studios transfer in 2018. ‘One of these days, am I going to evaporate? Right here?’ Growing up in the 90s, GG and her mates obsess over music, vaginas and witchcraft. But there’s a problem. Living feels too extreme. To be one of the good girls, GG learns to make herself numb, but at what cost? A bold, provocative and laugh-out-loud funny coming-of-age tale.

‘Cutting edge truth and hilarity from one of the freshest young voices of the century. Don’t miss Good Girl.’ – Emma Thompson
‘Flawless’ ★★★★★ – Voice
‘Contemporary, relevant and, most importantly, incessantly funny’ ★★★★ – WhatsOnStage

Panti Bliss: High Heels in Low Places

The Queen of Ireland, Panti, invites you into her gender-discombobulating, stiletto-shaped world, exposing the stories behind the make-up to reveal the National Treasure she is today. In 2014, Panti landed herself in a legal sh*tstorm, dubbed ‘Pantigate’. Her speech about homophobia went viral, was broadcast around the world, remixed by Pet Shop Boys, caused a parliamentary meltdown, and fed into Ireland’s marriage equality referendum success. Hilarious and poignant, Panti traces her journey from small-town boy kicking against traditions; to towering plastique woman in false lashes making history.

‘Courageous and hilariously honest…fabulously entertaining’ ★★★★★ – Edinburgh Festivals Magazine
‘Complete bliss.’ ★★★★ – Guardian
