News: Philip Ridley returns to Theatre N16

Philip Ridley’s award-winning Dark Vanilla Jungle plays at Theatre N16 from 21 March 2017 by Second Sons Theatre.

In this dark, 21st century fairytale, a lone actress tells her story. Andrea keeps getting asked if she’s ashamed of what she did to the soldier and the baby. But Andrea’s not ashamed at all and she wants to tell us why…

Dark Vanilla Jungle is a beautiful, breath-taking drama about a young girl’s quest for the perfect family & home that provides a biting commentary on the abuses of power in a patriarchal society. It won a Scotsman Fringe First Award in 2013 at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

Actress Emily Thornton trained at Italia Conti and was recently a finalist at Monologue Slam UK. Her theatre credits include Ruth in Sex With A Stranger (Pleasance Theatre) and The Sanctuary (Bread and Roses Theatre).

Award-winning writer Philip Ridley is a pioneer of ‘in-yer-face-theatre’ – the ground-breaking play The Pitchfork Disney is currently running at Shoreditch Town Hall as part of a double run with Killer.

Dark Vanilla Jungle plays the Theatre N16 from 21 – 31 March 2017. For more information and to book tickets, visit the website.
