Description

Skanks just wanna have a clean bill of health, the adoration of the public and some decent recycling facilities. Kate could be a successful writer, if she could just concentrate. Instead, she needs to recycle this bean can, shag sexy Gary and stop obsessing about her inevitable untimely death. Clementine Bogg-Hargroves 'delivers a tour-de-force performance' (Number9Reviews.blogspot.com) in this witty, dark and often filthy one-woman show. It'll make you laugh and then it'll make you cry. 'This is seriously funny one-woman stand-up' (BrightonSource.co.uk). 'Brutally honest **** (NorthWestEnd.co.uk). 'A constantly funny play' (BritishTheatreGuide.info).

Bogg-Hargroves is a vibrant, vulnerable performer

Theatre Weekly (3/5 stars) 35 days ago

Skank follows Kate, a paranoid and insecure woman through themes including work, sex, family, as well as both physical and mental health. Armed with an empty can of beans, an overwhelming dose of hypochondria and a longer-than-usual tinnitus diagnosis, Kate’s story is raunchy and fun, as well as bold and unapologetic, but unfortunately feels undercooked and all too familiar for the vast majority.

UK Theatre Network (5/5 stars) 37 days ago

Skank is described as stand-up comedy, but Bogg-Hargroves proves she is more than just a comedienne as she totally engages us in her character Kate’s adventures.
