Shedding A Skin Tickets

A story for our times

Tickets from £11


Sometimes you crack.
Sometimes you didn’t mean to yell that.
Sometimes you have to lay low until you’ve figured it out
And sometimes, sometimes you have to hibernate until you’ve healed.
This is a new day.

A play about finding kindness in unexpected places. A play about connecting with what our elders can teach us – new skin honouring old skin. A play about joy, healing and protest. And having a good belly laugh.

Following a sell-out run in May 2021, Soho Theatre revives Amanda Wilkin’s, 2020 Verity Bargate Award winning play, sponsored by Character 7, introducing audiences to a fresh and fierce new voice.

Since 1982, the biennial playwriting award competition has uncovered the best new play by an emerging UK and Irish writer and launched the careers of some of Britain’s most established writers. From a record number of 1493 entries for the 2020 Verity Bargate Award, Amanda Wilkin’s spellbinding play captivated the Award’s readers and judges, including Phoebe Waller-Bridge (Fleabag), Lolita Chakrabati (Hymn), Russell T Davies (It’s A Sin), Laura Wade (The Watsons) and Stephen Garrett (Character 7), and was announced as the winner in October 2020.

Shedding A Skin will be creating a relaxed, inclusive environment in Soho Theatre’s Main House for all performances.

Age Recommendation: 16+
