A Graeae and Belgrade Theatre co-production for Coventry City of Culture
Kerbs, Michael Southan’s brilliant new comedy about sex, dating & disability, opening at Belgrade Theatre, Coventry at the end of the month, before touring to Liverpool, Doncaster, Scarborough and Plymouth.
The cast is made up of Maya Coates, Jack Hunter & Rekha John-Cheriyan. Nickie Miles-Wildin directs.
We’re delighted to be returning to the Belgrade Theatre, where Kerbs will open as part of the Coventry 2021 City of Culture celebrations before embarking on a national tour. All tour dates can be found below.
“I haven’t come here to drink tea – Toni,
we’re off out to find the nearest happy hour.”
Lucy and David are dating. Or at least, they’re trying to.
Faced with first-date disasters, a few crossed wires and Lucy’s mum, what they really need is a bit of space, a bit of fun – and ideally some independence. Escaping for the weekend to a caravan park in Somerset, it’s time for them to find out if their spark will finally catch, or burn everything to the ground.
Written by Graeae’s own Write to Play graduate Michael Southan and directed by Nickie Miles-Wildin (Cuttin’ It, Crips without Constraints), Kerbs gets real about romance, sex and disability, while tackling the universal challenge faced by anyone experiencing a new relationship: letting someone in.
Every Kerbs show will feature Graeae’s signature integrated creative captioning and audio description.
A digital version will also be made available for home-viewing at the end of the run.
