Description

A gripping electric thriller, exploring the far-reaching, unexpected and devastating effect childhood bullying can wreak. Gasp-inducing moments between former schoolmates twist and turn in this tense, often darkly comedic, and ultimately shocking female two-hander. Innovative theatre company Peppered Wit Productions received four stars for The Collector at Camden Fringe 2013, (Everything-Theatre.co.uk), five stars for Blink at Camden Fringe 2016 (ViewFromTheGods.co.uk) and 'must see show' for Blink at Brighton Fringe 2017 (Simon Jenner, FringeReview.co.uk). They are not to be missed!

Saw “The Wasp” at Guildford Fringe and can definitely recommend this beautifully served piece of writing, great story with more than one twist and expertly acted. Definitely catch it at Edinburgh if you can!
