Apricot

Written by Gigi Rice
Directed by Lucy Nicholson
Book Now

Two teenage girls attached at the hip. Several pregnancies. A surprise knock at the door leading to the unfolding of intertwined lives, dreams and loves that asks the question – is there a wrong or right to the choices we make about our own bodies?

Set in modern day London, the play takes a look at our post Roe vs Wade world through the eyes of best friends Angel and Gina. On the cusp of adulthood they experience love, and loss when Angel makes the decision to use abortion as a form of birth control. This dark comedy explores gender roles and moral ambiguity from the viewpoint of three teenagers, posing big questions for its audience.

Gigi Rice is a new British playwright embracing the controversial and dark, as core subject matter for her writing. Often using comedy as a vehicle for her explorations, she believes in challenging her audience and offering different perspectives than the status quo. Asides from playwriting, Gigi is a Creative in Advertising, having won a prestigious Cannes Gold Young Lion.

Lucy Nicholson is an Actor, Writer, Producer from South London. Lucy studied at the Young Actors Theatre Islington and recent TV and film credits include QUEEN CHARLOTTE: A BRIDGETON STORY, BOY by Family Film Productions, directed by Ben Accosta and BAFTA winner Josie Copeland WALK HOME. Lucy is currently developing a TV series called Olive with Window Zebra Productions in which she plays the title role. As well as being a freelance producer, Lucy has also set up her own production company Any Second Now Productions with business partner Sarah Cameron-West where they are currently developing their TV shows JAQ AND JILL and VANTAGE POINT as well as championing new writing across London theatres.
