News: The Wasp thrills at Jermyn Street Theatre

Written by Morgan Lloyd Malcom, The Wasp is an electric thriller asking how far beyond the playground we carry our childhood experiences and what lengths we are willing to go to overcome them.

Heather and Carla haven’t seen each other since school. Their lives have taken very different paths – Carla lives a hand-to-mouth existence, while Heather has a high flying career, a husband and a beautiful home. And yet, here they are in a cafe having tea and making awkward conversation. That is, until Heather presents Carla with an unexpected proposition.

Why do hurt people hurt people? Can we transcend and forgive others for the misguided wrongs done to us in childhood?

The Wasp stars Lisa Gorgin and Selina Giles, with director Anna Simpson and designer Mike Leopold.


The Wasp plays Jermyn Street Theatre from 31 July – 12 August 2017. For more information or to book tickets, please visit the website.
