“Lou and Jez have different thoughts about the date they went on. This performance is very smartly constructed, so that even as a member of the audience, having peered like a peeping tom and seen some of what occurs during the date, you can’t be sure what exactly happened. Do we see what we think we see? This is chewy stuff, likely to start animated discussions in the pub afterwards. There are only 10 tickets per show for this immersive performance so best to book ahead.”


Meet Lou in the Vaults, they’ve got some thoughts on this date they went on.
Join Jaz for a drink and let them explain the situation. Who do you want to speak to first?

See for yourself. See what side you end up on.

Inspired by an article alleging Aziz Ansari committed sexual assault, we explore the rituals and minefields of dating in a post #metoo era. This is about more than gender. It’s about sexual dominance, social constructs and power.

How do we know who to have faith in when one party believes it’s sexual misconduct, and the other, simply a bad date?

Critic reviews

Urgent, swift, and exceptionally clever, the piece hands over all the elements to stir a personal reflection on behaviour and awareness

Broadway World

Creating a sense of genuine unease and authentically executed with believable acting, Greyscale makes us question past encounters and our own moral judgement

The Upcoming

Intriguingly high-concept, if awkwardly executed, exploration of consent and contemporary dating culture

The Stage

This is the very definition of ground-breaking, experiential theatre and it will stay with me for a while
