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.

Critic reviews

Maddie Rice's winningly performed solo show about the complexity of rape culture

The Stage

Pickle Jar takes on a lot with dealing with grief, sexual assault and suicide and it manages to tackle these issues with great sensitivity and care

Broadway World

An enjoyable show that tries to address serious topics in the #MeToo era, but it's hard to judge how well that message is received

Everything Theatre

Rice is a delight to watch and has a talent for comic timing. She is clearly a skilful writer and one to watch

West End Wilma

There's suspense and hilarity, all underscored with a hint of danger
