A punchy and provocative new play by the Bruntwood Prize-winning author of "Yen." Georgie is thirty with dirty secrets. She drinks in her bedroom and hides from the sun. Leah is fifteen with teenage dreams. She practices her cum face and Veets. A lot. All-meat, all-sex, all-vulnerable, all-powerful. There's a first time for everything... Isn't there? "Freak" premiered at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2014. Anna Jordan's play "Yen" won the 2013 Bruntwood Prize for Playwriting. Her other plays include "Chicken Shop" (Park Theatre, 2014), "Freak" (Assembly Rooms, Edinburgh, 2014), "Closer To God "(Best Play and Audience Award at the Offcut Festival, 2009) and "Just For Fun Totally Random" (Best New Writing at the Lost One Act Festival, 2009). As a director her work has included "Crystal Springs" (Eureka, San Francisco, 2014) and "Tomorrow I ll Be Happy" by Jonathan Harvey at the National Theatre Shed as part of the 2013 Connections Festival. She is Artistic Director of Without a Paddle Theatre, and teaches acting and playwriting. 'stunningly well written... funny, raw, honest, deadpan... Jordan is a wonderful voice' - Exeunt Magazine 'Jordan s strong script bubbles with a fierce intelligence... darkly funny' - Time Out 'Jordan s writing is vivid and punchy... a taut, raw but also warm two-hander' - The Stage '[has] a tenderness to match [its] dry wit... a frank new play by a fresh young voice' - A Younger Theatre"
