ABOUT PRAMKICKER

Jude has always known she doesn’t want kids. Her sister Susie isn’t sure.

One day, in a café full of ‘yummy mummies’, Jude loses the plot and kicks a pram. Then gets arrested. Then gets sent to anger management.

Susie goes along for the ride and uses the opportunity to confess a secret.

MEET PRAMKICKER

“I am the Edith fucking Piaf of the empty womb”

(She kicked a pram)

“Je ne regrettay fucking rien”

Following smash performances at Latitude, Edinburgh, and a UK tour, acclaimed Old Trunk bring their hit play to their hometown.
A journey of two sisters; an unflinching look at what it means to be a modern woman.

“A real gem” ★★★★ The Guardian
“A shot of high-energy fun…thoughtful writing that never forgets to be funny” – ★★★★ Observer
“Desperately funny, emotionally resonant” ★★★★ The Stage

ABOUT FRAN & LENI

1976. Fran & Leni meet in a North London comp. Three years later they are The Rips. Girls with guitars, bored of playing nice.

Music, sex, fishnets, tits and spitting. A two-girl escape from everything sugar and spice.

Following critically-acclaimed runs at Latitude, Edinburgh, & London’s Vault festival, Old Trunk bring this full-throttle tale of lifelong friendship to their hometown.

“Profanity meets poetry…energetic performances that balance knife-edged irony with heart-rending sensitivity…a provocative, observational piece.” ★★★★ The Stage

“Bittersweet story of two girls’ rebellion against the machine…laugh out loud funny, provocative, deeply sad” ★★★★ To Do List
