coming home with me - EDINBURGH PREVIEW
Heavy beats, hammering shots, and harassment from boys. Grab rape culture by its balls.
A night exploring the grimy underbelly of a girls’ night out. The perils of creepy dudes, lad culture, and general unwanted attention face almost every girl when partying, so why aren’t we talking about it?
Girl A, B and C just want to enjoy their night but it seems that round every corner there’s a man wanting to touch, insult, or watch them. The girls’ stories are weaved together using interviews from people in Brighton, London and Edinburgh, bouncers and harassment charity experts. We lift the lid on what’s really happening in night clubs and how we can stop the harassment. Using Brechtian direction, music, and multimedia Coming Home With Me is a feast for the senses whilst it tackles a challenging subject.
Using verbatim testimony and drawing from real news stories, we explore how this affects us all. The subject matter is dark and deeply human but is tackled in an entertaining and hopeful way, making this a performance everyone will enjoy. Expect stupid dancing and patriarchy-dismantling from Brighton-based theatre company, Girl Code.
