A butch Marxist trainwreck who works in the cereal aisle. A Christian with an engagement ring and the voice of an angel. Devon.

Surrounding them is fifteen years of history. The rubble of polyester thongs, dolls and skipping ropes. Future uncertain, Nancy and Lucy must face up to where it all began: sharpening pencils and plucking the wings off flies, aged seven.

After workshops at the University of Exeter and Exeter Fringe Festival 2020, new play LAVENDER was programmed for VAULT Festival 2022. Before this, team shared early work at Exeter Phoenix, Theatre Royal Plymouth, and Exeter Library, concluding in two sold-out performances at the Omnibus Theatre in Clapham, South London. This team of early-career theatre makers bring to Bedales an exclusive staged reading of a new draft of Holly Fitzpatrick’s acclaimed play.

“Delicate, vibrant and undeniably feminine”
