About: Private View


Devised and performed by Plunge Theatre

23rd – 27th September 2014, The Courtyard Theatre, Hoxton

Private View uses dance, verbatim text and vast amounts of chocolate cake to look at the ideals forced on today’s young women. Part love song, part hate mail, and constantly questioning.

How can perfection be achieved? And at what cost?

Prepare to be plunged into the loud, rude and self-deprecating world of three differently shaped women: each struggling to navigate the perplexing landscape of Spanx, chicken fillets and selfies.

Join us in this dark and comic quest to re-discover our true selves beneath the surmounting pile of wax strips, celery and self-doubt.

Having met at Sussex University and unified by a keen sense of the ridiculous, Plunge Theatre make work that’s original, funny and empathetic – at once inward looking and outwardly reflecting.

Plunge Theatre were the Lyric Theatre’s Emerging Artist residents in May 2013. At present, they are resident artists at Theatre Delicatessen, with whom they developed highly successful immersive show, The Cake Shop.

The Stage

“A clever, original piece which has me waiting with bated breath throughout most of the performance”

The F-Word

“Plunge Theatre is definitely a group to watch”

Broadway Baby

“A talented, exciting and irreverent theatre company that has a big future ahead of them”

Jessica Hepburn, Executive Director, Lyric Hammersmith
