Lent Week 7
“They think I am the most beautiful thing in the world. And I don’t mind being a thing. I don’t want their respect.”
Leah is a fifteen-year-old girl who is nervous about losing her virginity. She Veets everywhere and practices her cum face in the mirror. Georgie is thirty and feels frustrated with the turn her life has taken. Having recently ended a long-term relationship and quitting her job, she spends her days lounging around drinking wine and masturbating.
Set on a double bed, the play follows these two women as they try to navigate their sexual identities. In an age of Blurred Lines and widespread access to pornography, FREAK explores the ‘female need to be validated by the male gaze’.
