Pests

A brutal, authentic, hard-hitting drama about survival, love and trying to escape your past.

Pink needs Rolly. Rolly needs Pink. Pink is sucked in and Rolly wants out but where do you find a compromise in between the zig-a-zig-ah?

A story of two sisters trapped in their decaying nest, tied to a past the refuses to release them.

Pests was commissioned by Clean Break, a women’s theatre company set up by two female prisoners who believed that theatre could bring the hidden stories of imprisoned women to a wider audience.
