"You’re looking at me. All the time. What can I do, walk around with a T-shirt on like ”I’m Twelve, fuck off”?
Award-winning writer Charlie Josephine (I, Joan, The Globe) radically responds to William Golding’s classic Lord of the Flies in their new piece Flies – A powerful and contemporary allegory on consent and the fetishisation of the female body.
This new show explodes with tales of girlhood, and the messy joy and sticky shame that come with it. Written from young women’s real experiences expect raw honesty, humour, and sweaty dance.
Directed by Julia Head (Romeo and Juliet, Bristol Old Vic), and brought to life by an exceptional cast of actors and alumni from The BRIT School, Flies is a disobedient cultural response to a very well-known story: the male gaze.
