Where and when: 5 – 23 November, Blue Elephant Theatre
What it’s all about… My best friend Meg actually lost it last week, to her boyfriend Amir. Apparently he lit candles. Magical, was the word she used.
Alice would give anything for something magical to happen to her. But she’s shy, has no idea how to contour and the last thing she loved was a roast potato.
She feels ordinary. Unremarkable. Unpopular.
Until Jamie from Maths messages her.
Finally, something is about to happen to Alice.
Something big. Something she won’t ever forget. Something she never expected.
And the whole school knows.
Easy is a powerful new play by Amy Blakelock, exploring what happens when we combine social media, love island ideals, Snapchat and teenage insecurity. An intimate portrait of adolescence today, Easy asks us – why is it so hard to believe we’re good enough as we are?
You’ll like it if… you remember the squeamish and agonising world of teenage love and sex, if you’ve ever sent nudes, if you’re a Snapchat fiend or if you’re a complete social media phobe, this one-woman show will explore how constant digital connectivity changes the landscape of teenage sexuality.
You should see it because… it’s a contemporary, fast-paced hour of love, sex, digital consent, and learning to demand respect for your own body.
