Rock out with a woman as she embarks on her courageous sexual discovery.

Sugar Coat Information

A feminist pop-punk live music play about love, loss and lubrication. Based on a true story.

Sugar Coat is a hilarious and heartfelt mix of rebellious empowerment and laugh-out-loud teen angst.

Performed by an all female and non-binary band, we follow one woman’s coming-of-age journey, spanning across eight years of sexual highs and lows, with sprinklings of 90s nostalgia and an unashamedly queer and feminist call to arms.

Winner of the OFFComm 2020 Award, Show of the Week (VAULT Festival 2020) and UNTAPPED (New Diorama Theatre & Underbelly) finalist, Sugar Coat is an uplifting and liberating show about puberty, sex, feminism, and reclaiming your body.

Featuring original music inspired by Riot Grrl bands, such as Bikini Kill, Le Tigre, Veruca Salt and Letters to Cleo.

From the Producers of Fringe First winning Bobby & Amy, this powerful gig theatre confronts sex and sexuality in a brutally funny and honest show about trauma and recovery. Written by singer-songwriter Lilly Pollard (BBC Music Introducing) and playwright Joel Samuels (Fever Pitch, Divas, A Wake in Progress), with direction by Celine Lowenthal (Pecs, Soho Theatre; Sex, Sex, Men, Men, Yard Theatre) and co-Musical Direction from Anya Pearson of the renowned band Dream Nails.

Contains graphic sexual content, loud music and unapologetically bad-ass feminism.
