Length: 53 pages30 minutes

Description

A touching and provocative story of first love though the eyes of a gender-curious teen, Scorch was inspired by recent UK cases of 'gender fraud'.

For those who feel they're not living the right life, online is a place to be yourself.

'More real than real life. I'm honest on there. I'm being honest. That's important.'

Out in the real world, though, things can be very different.

Stacey Gregg's play for a solo performer premiered at the Outburst Queer Arts Festival, Belfast, in 2015, co-produced by Prime Cut, MAC and Outburst. It won the Irish Times Theatre Award for Best New Play and the Writers Guild of Ireland ZeBBie Award for Best Theatre Script. It was presented in Paines Plough's Roundabout at the 2016 Edinburgh Festival Fringe, before touring Ireland.

‘A compelling look at teenage identity… The real life issue takes on heightened dramatic resonance, fractured and splintered by Gregg’s syncopated prose style’ - Irish Times
