KING'S HEAD THEATRE
Men are afraid that women will laugh at them and women are afraid that men will kill them
Ollie is a self-proclaimed Beta Male. He’s into ultimate frisbee, vegan barbecues and playing the Hamilton soundtrack on repeat. When he volunteers to model nude for an artist, he’s hell bent on showing her just how woke he is. Lola doesn’t care if Ollie is a nice guy or not - she just wants to draw him.
When he won’t let her get on with it, Lola decides to teach him a lesson. Soon, Ollie starts asking if he can have his clothes back.
Stripped is a tense comic drama that asks whether those “nice guys” are really all that they seem.

★★★★ "Stripped stimulates our thoughts and opens up a discussion - surely two of the main reasons we choose to go to the theatre" Theatre Broadway
"A superb embodiment of relatable situations" Everything Theatre
