Dark Vanilla Jungle comes to Theatre N16

Philip Ridley’s magnificent, award-winning Dark Vanilla Jungle heads to London’s Theatre N16 later this month.

Produced by Brighton Fringe Award nominated Second Sons, and directed by Samson Hawkins, this dark, 21st century fairytale, has a lone actress telling the audience her story.

Andrea keeps getting asked if she’s ashamed of what she did to the soldier and the baby. But Andrea’s not ashamed at all and she wants to tell you why…

A beautiful, breath-taking drama about a young girl’s quest for the perfect family & home revealing a biting commentary on abuses of power in a patriarchal society.

Bradford-born actress Emily Thornton was recently a finalist of Monologue Slam UK. Her theatre credits include Ruth in Sex with a Stranger at The Pleasance Theatre and The Sanctuary at The Bread and Roses Theatre.

Samson Hawkins is a theatre maker from Northamptonshire who trained as an actor at both East 15 & Italia Conti. After graduating, he formed Second Sons Theatre Company to make “theatre for people who don’t like theatre.”

Dark Vanilla Jungle runs at Theatre N16 from March 21-31.
