Tangram Theatre Company presents: FUCKED

a debut play by Penelope Skinner
directed by Daniel Goldman, performed by Becci Gemmell

I don’t mean to sound horrible but the sex was – well – it was a bit like a kebab? Doner, not shish. Last night after five pints it was hot, it was tasty, it was just what I needed. But this morning in the cold light of day, I am coated in the greasy film of regret.

When 27 year old F finds a love story she wrote at the age of 12, she goes on a trip down memory lane, stopping off at the most significant mornings-after of her life. This exciting debut play by Penelope Skinner chronicles the sexual journey that one girl embarks on from adolescence to womanhood.

Award winning Tangram Theatre Company returns to the Old Red Lion after their critically acclaimed production of Sarah Kane’s 4.48 Psychosis in 2006 with a very different and exciting female playwright.

Penelope Skinner is making her full length professional debut with Fucked. Penelope’s previous work has been performed at the Young Vic and the George Tavern and her short play 1 in 5 (“kind of Two Ronnies style, but funnier”, Andrew Haydon) was one of the Upstart winners at Hampstead Theatre Daring Pairings Festival in September 2007. Becci Gemmell recently performed in Old Vic New Voices award-winning production of Mad Funny Just at Theatre 503 (Time Out Critics’ Choice) where she received excellent personal reviews (“sublime to behold” Time Out, “Becci Gemmell reminds you uncannily of Julie Walters”, Evening Standard).

Daniel Goldman has directed four Tangram show’s including Sarah Kane’s 4.48 Psychosis (ORL, Arcola), Crunch! a show about apples (Pleasance Edinburgh, Arts Theatre – Total Theatre Award nominee), Richard III (Southwark Playhouse – Better Bankside Shakespeare Award Winner) and Sepia Dreams as part of CASA Latin American Theatre Festival in St Andrew’s Crypt, Holborn. Daniel was a runner up in last years JMK Award.
