A new play (★★★★ Kentish Towner) inspired by candid conversations with teenage dads, and a spirited look at unplanned parenthood from the male perspective, PULLING OUT is touring this Spring. Buy tickets for 8th-11th March at The Wardrobe Theatre here.
Leo’s seventeen. He’s got college, a decent right-swipe-rate on Tinder and a new-born. He’s mixing avocado and saving for Pampers over own-brand because of the more reliable gusset. He wants to go the distance as a dad. That’s if his mates or Caitlin, his baby’s mum, will let him. Or her mum, or stepdad or his mum, or his stepdads…Those nans and grandads all want a piece of the pie. So “pulling out” didn’t work too well as contraception, but is it his best bet now?
Pulling Out is written by Lucy Bell, directed by Stephanie Kempson and performed by Bob Yates-Tily and Jenny Davies.
“A powerful and hilarious new play by Lucy Bell gives voice to young dads” Kentish Towner
“Lucy Bell’s Pulling Out feels pitch perfect: beautifully written, sensitively performed and with a rip-roaring fast pace.” The PRSD
“Eliot Salt’s metamorphosis into the straight-talking matriarch encroaching on her son’s personal space is particularly captivating” The Stage
