Embark on a journey of sexual awakening with adult virgin and Marriage Guidance Counsellor, Stacy.

What could go wrong? Small boobs, imaginary kinks, and sexy foreign men are packed together in this fast-paced, all-female, multi-rolling comedy. You’ll want to look away in horror, but how can you?

Press & Reviews
- “Beneath A Cups is not just a play for women. It's a play for anyone in a body that's not felt quite right. Raw, vulnerable, hilarious.” Audience Member from A Pinch of VAULT
- "A fantastic example of women led comedy that speaks to everyone. The duo performs it in a style of the early work of French and Saunders. It is poignant, charming, and sometimes rude just in the right measure. It is directed with great command." Uri Roodner
- "A punchy, clever and powerful performance... I don't think I'll ever forget how moved I was by the ending." Cat Thomas
