Wretch

Wretch

A one-act play about life after homelessness, Wretch was inspired by three months of interviews that writer Rebecca Walker conducted with vulnerably housed women at a day centre in Whitechapel. Originally commissioned by Into the Wolf Productions, Wretch completed an Arts-Council-funded tour of drop-in centres, night shelters and drug rehabilitation units in 2015, to overwhelmingly positive reviews from its audiences who shared lived experience with the play’s characters. Wretch has been reworked into a play with songs by London-based band Eliza and the Bear. In a taut seventy minute show, three actors and a band of musicians bring the too-keenly-felt world of Amy and Irena’s hopes and delusions into brilliant, disconcerting life.

This show has now closed. See our list of theatre tickets for shows currently on sale.

About Wretch:

A women’s hostel outside London, where the noise never stops but you’re always alone. An ex-teacher and an ex-junkie, who met on a night bus during long, dark nights of homelessness. A year on, Irena has rebuilt her life. But just as she thinks she is safe, Amy crashes head-first back into it with bigger dreams for life’s second chances.
