"WHEN I MICROWAVE FOOD, I HAVE TO LOOK AT THE FLOOR, I CAN’T WATCH THE NUMBERS TICKING DOWN. ANOTHER FORTY SECONDS CLOSER TO DEATH. AND, WORSE, FAILURE."
Jess is an actor, or will be, as soon as she hears back from her latest audition. Mark works in the City, a trader who feels he’s never really been ‘pick of the bunch’. The pair are a little under-ripe, but definitely fine almost some of the time, until the night they have an experience that threatens to peel away everything they thought they knew. The fallout from this slip-up probes the extent to which we are accountable for our reflexes – and why some things make us go bananas.
A raw, discomfiting comedy about gender roles; Flinch takes an unabashed look at emasculation, failure and the struggle for intimacy.
From emerging company Sounds Like Thunder who have just returned from a sell-out, 5* run at The Edinburgh Fringe Festival of their show Kidding.
With support from the Split Infinitive Trust.
