Ali and Lola are best-friends and housemates, after an altercation occurs on a dog walk, an incel ends up barricaded in their bathroom. Will Lola recover from her broken heart? Will Ali get away with kidnap? Will Mike ever get out of the bathroom and back to his mum? This is a fast paced, thrilling and darkly humorous piece of new writing by Natasha Brotherdale Smith (longlisted for the Women’s Prize for Playwriting 2021). In the past years we’ve seen a huge shift in the conversations surrounding women’s safety, following the introduction of new growing threats, like far right misogynist extremism and generational hopelessness. ‘Stuck’ explores how generational hopelessness manifests itself within both the victim and perpetrator, and the behaviours derived as a result. A brand new dark comedy exploring female friendships, incel ideology and two friends who end up in way over their heads. We are a female, queer and Northern led creative team working together to give urgent and often underrepresented stories the platform they deserve on the London and national stage.
