by Philip Ridley
‘Art’s my hobby too.’ Hobby?!
Sasha was destined to take the art world by storm. At the age of fifteen pop stars wanted his paintings, and a new exhibition was going to make him a millionaire.
But now he lives in a run-down flat with his out-of-work boyfriend, serves in a stationers, and no one’s even heard of him… what went wrong?
Philip Ridley’s darkly comic new play is about art, family, memory, and being haunted by the life we never lived.
One of the greatest living British writers, Philip Ridley’s previous plays include The Fastest Clock in the Universe, Radiant Vermin, The Pitchfork Disney, Tender Napalm, Dark Vanilla Jungle, and Mercury Fur, as well as the screenplay for the 1990 film The Krays.
Tramp return to Southwark Playhouse after the success of their Offie-nominated immersive version of Confessional by Tennessee Williams and the ★★★★★ Offie-nominated world premiere of Philip Ridley’s Angry.
Praise for previous Philip Ridley plays:
★★★★★ “Thrilling… I left the theatre convinced that I’d seen a work of genius immaculately performed. Wonderful.” — Arts Desk on The Pitchfork Disney
★★★★ “Ridley’s play is completely and dizzyingly of itself. The writing seethes and burns…. Seldom has sexual love been explored on stage with such ferocious honesty.” — The Guardian on Tender Napalm
★★★★ “Ridley pictures consumerism at its most insane and destructive. He’s stingingly funny…fierce… dazzling.” — The Evening Standard on Radiant Vermin
