Peak Stuff Play Tour
A messed up show for messed up times.
Alice is done with fast fashion. Ben can’t stop buying trainers. And Charlie just wants to sell out… one organ at a time. Peak Stuff presents three fast-paced, funny, f***ed-up stories, taking a deep-dive into consumer culture. In an age of thrifting, retail therapy, climate crisis and click and collect – how does ‘stuff’ define us? And do we know when to stop?
Award-winning theatre company ThickSkin have teamed up with the writing talents of Billie Collins (Too Much World at Once) to produce one of the most visually thrilling and inventive shows you will see this year.
Underscored by live drumming and featuring a spectacular video design, one actor plays three characters trying to save the world or themselves. Multiple stories collide to chip away at the role consumer culture plays in shaping our identity. Directed by ThickSkin’s Neil Bettles (How Not To Drown, The Unreturning), Peak Stuff is a cautionary tale for modern times. Winner of the New Play Commission Scheme (Writers’ Guild of Great Britain)
