What's On

Four Letter Word Theatre

BABY.

Red is nothing, red is always the inside. You can’t wrap the baby up in a red blanket to show who it is. It’s the second colour that counts.

Three young women walk into an alleyway.
They find a baby.
A real baby. 

A surreal exploration of pain, sex, motherhood, and the minds of teenage girls. And babies. 

You know those days when its hot, too hot and really windy there's this hot wind blowing in your face into your head, and you can see the younger kids getting really ratty and peoples clothes are going everywhere and you have to hold down your skirt and you can smell something on the air, smells like wildness or power or rebellion and you’re like fuck it.
