When > 29 Jan – 15 Feb
Where > Birmingham Repertory Theatre, United Kingdom
What > Landmark Productions and The Everyman’s sensational adaptation of Louise O’Neill’s devastating novel about sexual consent makes its UK première at The REP following huge acclaim, including a sold-out season at Ireland’s National Theatre, The Abbey.
One night in a small town in County Cork, where everyone knows everyone, things spiral terrifyingly and violently out of control and a young woman’s life is changed forever. What will happen to Emma now? – her reputation in tatters, and her attackers believed.
Theatrically extraordinary and brought to life by a powerful ensemble, led by Lauren Coe as Emma, this stunning multimedia production vividly portrays what it’s like to be young in this hyper-sexualised, hyper-scrutinised age. It’s a heart-breaking and truthful examination of the consequences of rape and society’s penchant for victim blaming.
Asking For It is that rare thing – a necessary show about now and an unforgettable night at the theatre.
Entry > From £10
