Welcome to our world of chosen family, queer love, and making ends meet in a cost of living crisis. Stripped! is a theatre-cabaret show about sex worker rights in a society that tells us it’s okay to use sex to sell anything but actual sex.
Devised from real life experiences, we follow Maia’s first shift at the club as she attempts to make enough money to save up to leave her abusive relationship.
Stripped! is a piece of fierce, bold and feminist theatre that reflects the reality of existing as a sex worker in the current political climate, the sisterhood of the strip club, and the ways in which we organise in the face of exploitative bosses, strip club closures, and oppressive legislation.
Devised and performed by Megan Prescott (Skins), Carmen Ali (TimeOut, BBC), Maedb Joy (Guildhall School of Music & Drama, The Barbican), and Bella Quinn (ICA, Tate St Ives).
