Boundless revisits ’90s with Confidence at Southwark Playhouse


If you’re not interested in earning a new pair of Nikes by the end of the day…complete designer wardrobe by the end of the week…all the beers you can drink…if you don’t want to meet Uma Thurman…then okay, stay here, as King of the Slackers, that’s fine by me.

Mixtapes, Argos catalogue Christmas lists, VHS, crop tops, chokers, disposable cameras – those were the days.

Boundless Theatre is bringing the ’90s back with a revival of Judy Upton’s Confidence at London’s Southwark Playhouse this spring.

As another summer season on the seafront gets under way Ella is turning up the heat in a high stakes game to get as far away as possible.

While Ruby keeps the café going, and Dean mans the ice cream kiosk, Ella learns there’s no fast track to success.

First performed in 1998, at Birmingham Repertory Theatre, Confidence will explode back on to the stage for a new generation of dreamers.

Artistic director of Boundless, Rob Drummer, directs YouTube star, Tanya Burr, in the role of Ella.

She is joined by Anna Crichlow (Ruby), Vauxhall Jermaine (Edwin), Will Pattle (Dean) and Rhys Yates (Ben).

Confidence plays at the Southwark Playhouse from May 23 – June 16.
