BY ROSANNA SUPPA
Spurred on by the promise of higher education, one girl monologues her way through rehabilitation groups for young offenders and tries not to become a product of her upbringing. Which should be easy, because you get really bored of shotguns if you played with them as a kid. TUNA is a darkly comic new play about the unsexy side of growing up around guns, ridiculous ideas of social mobility, and female criminality.
Semi-autobiographical and stored in brine.
Written by and starring Rosanna Suppa (It Rains Diamonds on Jupiter), directed by Robbie Taylor Hunt (ERIS, WIFE) and produced by theatre company AIRLOCK. AIRLOCK collaboratively creates new theatre with queer characters.
"An electric rollercoaster of storytelling. Rosanna Suppa’s energetic performance packs a punch that leaves you awed. Brave and soulful and funny and raw."
Previous praise for AIRLOCK:
★★★★★ Jack the Lad - "One of the best new plays we have seen this summer."
★★★★★ LondonTheatre1 - "WIFE takes an already tantalisingly creative anthology of poetry to a new level of imagination."
