About: Bruised Fruit

The perfect housewife.

A trauma survivor.

Letís take control of this narrative.

Bruised Fruit is a double bill, presenting two women owning their space and their stories in a way thatís a bit queer, a bit dark and a bit funny.

Evelyn Parker is the perfect 1950s housewife who finds herself in court, divorcing her almighty ex.

Nadine is a current-day chef and single mother overcoming the trauma of her past, who finds herself at a strip club completely enthralled by a young woman in a sparkly two-piece and stilettos.

Who are these women? A wife. A mother. A servant. A victim. A piece of fruit. Tired of being defined by the titles given to them, Evelyn and Nadine expose their innermost secrets, desires and uncomfortable truths, to find the essence of the lives they want to lead.

Letís talk desire. Letís talk damage. Letís talk food.

Letís take control.

Creative partnership and force to be reckoned with, Amy Garner Buchanan (LAMDA) and Hayley Ricketson (RADA), proudly present this extraordinary double bill of solo shows – written by the two women respectively, Ricketson directs Garner Buchanan in this preview of their latest work. This is their second collaboration, following their adaptation of The Last Samurai by Helen DeWitt which was developed on the Park Theatreís Script Accelerator Programme. Titled We Never Get Off at Sloane Square, it will premiere in 2020.
