“I’ve been ‘conditioned’, right, as a woman, to think that it’s important for me to have eye contact. Affection. To feel, to feel, connected right, and I’ve never actually considered whether or not I want to be not connected.”

Tosh and Lou live in their flat, spending time sharing stories about boys, about sex, about life. But as they converse, the idea of where they sit in society begins to unravel. Over 22 scenes they debate the ideas of monogamy, questionable hookups and the female friendships we make throughout life. What will happen when Tosh and Lou try to break out of the rules they’ve been brought up into?

This play is showing as a double bill with The Nobodies. Find out more about the BOVTS Summer Festival at the Wardrobe Theatre here.
