SUMMARY

Two strangers. The same bus route. The same city. Every day he’s there, just across the aisle. Smiling up at her as she falls, blushing, into a seat. Impossibly obvious with her messy hair and her ripped tights. Almost too dramatic a cliché. But there’s something sinister about the way he’s looking at her. Like he knows something. Like he knows how to hurt her.

Prettier Things begins as any romantic comedy might begin, with two strangers revelling in the ironic charm of the seemingly harmless clichés that have brought them together. However, as the sinister realities of the boy-meets-girl narrative are exposed, we begin to question why we’re often so quick to warm to these familiar romantic stereotypes. From the producer of Sleepless Theatre’s ‘mind-blowing’ (ThreeWeeks) The Master and Margarita comes a new play about the male gaze, entitlement issues, and the relatively minor inconveniences of public transport.
