About: The Acid Test

A Royal Court play on millennial crises.
Produced and presented by Succubus Productions

Hosted by The Cockpit

“You know you think you are going to have that magic moment, when you are just a responsible adult. That click moment and you always think it’s just round the corner but well… mine’s still coming”

Three flawed young women and one lonely middle-aged Father pull each other through a reckless night of alcohol, weed and emotional outpourings.

Touching on generational divides, father-daughter relationships and the balance between self-preservation and self-exposure, Anya Reiss’s second play ‘The Acid Test’ reveals those struggling to take responsibility for their own adulthood.

Praise for the play as performed in 2011 at The Royal Court:

‘…it has wit and heart, and much of the dialogue is disconcertingly authentic… Adept at capturing the cadences of post-adolescent chatter, Reiss also knows how to probe the most raw emotions.’
-Evening Standard-

‘…full of humour, acute observation and accurate perception. The dialogue is as powerful and sharp as a vodka cocktail, and the tensions between generation are excruciatingly convincing.’
-The Stage-

Tuesday 5th to Saturday 9th December – 7:30pm
Full price: £15 Concessions: £12
