Wasted
By Kat Woods

About The Play

Wasted, by award-winning playwright Kat Woods, is a socio-political play that explores themes of binge drinking and sexual assault. Join Oli, Emma, and their friends on a night out drinking, flirting, and clubbing. The morning after the night before ensues and any event can only be remembered through the blurry haze of a dubious hangover. Wasted illuminates that grey area in the sexual relationship after a few too many drinks. The characters are not sure what has happened; both suffering from post-alcoholic amnesia. They are both secure in the fact that sex happened but, where alcohol puts the female in a state unable- legally- to consent to sex, our characters continually ask 'what happened' as they are marched through the legal system.

Age guidance: 16+ (discussions on alcohol and sexual activity)

Trigger warnings: There will be discussions around the issue of sexual abuse and rape that some may find upsetting. Information on support services will be provided.
