"Look, I don’t even remember talking to you after Year Eight so whatever you think I did it was probably someone else."
Morgan Lloyd Malcolm’s sharply comic The Wasp is transferring to Trafalgar Studios this December, following a sell-out run at Hampstead Downstairs earlier this year.
Once close childhood friends, Heather and Carla’s lives have taken very different paths – Carla lives a hand-to-mouth existence raising four children while Heather has a high-flying career, a husband and a beautiful home. And yet, here they are sitting in a café twenty years later, with heavily pregnant Carla chain-smoking, as they awkwardly reminisce about the past. Then Heather presents Carla with a bag containing a significant amount of cash and an unexpected proposition.
Laden with secrets, Morgan Lloyd Malcolm’s electric thriller asks how far beyond the playground we carry our childhood experiences and how far some people are willing to go in order to come to terms with them.
Delving deep into issues such as bullying, regret, kindness and forgiveness, Malcolm questions how we find our way through dark times, finding humour and light in moments of despair.
