Runtime: 1h 20m
Sugar Coat is a hilarious and heartfelt mix of rebellious empowerment and laugh-out-loud teen angst. Performed by an all female and non-binary band, we follow one woman’s coming-of-age journey, spanning across eight years of sexual highs and lows, with sprinklings of 90s nostalgia and an unashamedly queer and feminist call to arms. Winner of the OFFComm 2020 Award, Show of the Week (VAULT Festival 2020) and UNTAPPED (New Diorama Theatre & Underbelly) finalist, Sugar Coat is an uplifting and liberating show about puberty, sex, feminism, and reclaiming your body. Featuring original music inspired by Riot Grrrl bands, such as Bikini Kill, Le Tigre, Veruca Salt and Letters to Cleo. Starring Rachel Barnes (Joan of Leeds, Breach; Canary And The Crow, Middle Child), Eve De Leon Allen (Doctor Who, BBC), Dani Heron (Peter Gynt, National Theatre), Anya Pearson (lead guitarist of renowned punk band Dream Nails) and Sarah Workman (Girls Don't Play Guitar, Liverpool Royal Court). *Contains graphic sexual content, loud music and unapologetically bad-ass feminism.
