From the multi-award-winning team that bought you the "exquisite" (The List) Sexy Lamp and Bicycles and Fish...
“The 2014 plan was a simple one, I would “Casanova” myself around our nation's capital looking for consenting heterosexual adult males. One no-frills lover-man for every month. I was the original calendar girl. Helen Mirren plays me in the film.”
In 2014 Katie was very sexually active. She was also extremely depressed. Join her as she examines whether the two things are connected.
A storytelling show with songs about sex, stigma and cystitis.
Sticky Door is the third part in Katie Arnstein’s It’s a Girl! trilogy.
Catch Katie's other shows at VAULT 2020 as she presents three shows together for the first time on 16th February. Three. Because that's how trilogies work.
Supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England. Also supported by Pleasance Futures and Redbridge Drama Centre.Book Now

A town is in turmoil. A hospital is closing. And an MP is dead on the train tracks. ... Accident? Or opportunity?
LAD is a cheeky two-hander that tugs playfully at the knot of toxic masculinity. A balls-to-the-wall comedy about... balls. And becoming a better man.
Alice is English. Ish. At least that’s what she likes to think. Klein Blue presents Alice, a unique and arresting solo play uncovering the complexity of Azerbaijani-British identity.
Shaving? Tanning? Over-exercising? Cabbage-souping? Starving? Don’t bother, we're not. Grab your pals and your biscuits and watch Beach Body Ready!
