It’s hard keeping it together when your whole life is falling apart.
An undeniably witty one-woman show, Pickle Jar follows a teacher ready to
shape a generation of fierce, poised, self-assured young women even if she’s not quite sure how
to how to be a grown-up yet herself.
Stranger danger, heartbreak and piña coladas are all on the syllabus when you're learning how
to be a Responsible Adult. The pressures of teaching, Tinder and outrageous best mates are a lot
to juggle. It's hard keeping it together when your whole life is falling apart.
Tackling important social issues of consent and victim-blaming, Pickle Jar is honestly and sharply
written. It’s a refreshing look at life for young women self-consciously navigating optimistic
female empowerment while getting swept away by the excitement of playful sexuality. An
acutely observed production, Pickle Jar is a moving piece about friendship, grief and mixing
metaphors which never fails to be funny.
