First Drafts: Girl Meets Boy

24 July — 26 July

Debbie Hannan & the company

Tickets £5

A bright-eyed and form-bending adaptation of Ali Smith’s love story, Girl Meets Boy.

Greek myths, gender politics and global protest combine as two very different Scottish sisters collide with a kilted stranger who jolts their world. A look at how language makes us, how we make language, and where loving another human can possibly sit in between.

Thanks to Old Vic Lab, Really Useful Group, Arts Council England and Suki Mok
