One-woman comedy drama, exploring the affects of hypersexualised media on young people's relationships, sex lives & self-esteem.

"And then he pretended to tie my hands behind my back, and the whole time he kept screaming 'Shut the fuck up! Shut the fuck up!' I tell you, it is so refreshing to be with someone who likes to fuck outside the box." - Samantha, Sex And The City

Fucking Outside The Box tells the story of 18 year old Frankie as she attempts to act out a Sex and the City-inspired rape-fantasy role play, with an acquaintance she met at a party.Frankie is desperate to be sexually adventurous and desired, but can she deal with the realities of this increasingly dark encounter?

This one woman comedy-drama aims to unpick female sexuality, and to ask

How much are young women today in control of their sexuality and how much are they influenced by distorted images and messages in our media?

Fucking Outside the Box is my first play, and I am raising funds to take it to VAULT festival in February 2014.

All the money raised will go directly towards the running of the show - venue hire, rehearsal room hire, costume, props, set and technical equipment. The money will not be used for marketing or artist's fees..

I am currently working with my director Sophie Moniram towards a rehearsed reading of the play in December, and we are determined to bring you a show of the highest possible quality in 2014. 
Reaching our fundraising target is essential in giving us the freedom we need to fulfil our artistic ambitions and to share with you this story of growing up, sexual exploration and identity. 
We are addressing complex and troubling subjects, in a challenging theatrical set-up, but we feel a real sense of urgency in tackling these issues head-on and are hopeful that our work will facilitate more open discussions about pornography, rape culture and consent.

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

We are both emerging artists, working in part-time jobs whilst we put this show on, and this is likely to prove challenging both creatively and physically!
Working to a deadline whilst dividing your focus between two very different jobs can be stressful at times, but we hope to overcome this through dedication, focus and strength of will.
