About the event

Following a highly-acclaimed run at Edinburgh Fringe 2017, Tumble Tuck, written by Sarah Milton and presented by BackHere! Theatre, now transfers to London to headline the Who Runs the World? season at the King’s Head Theatre. This exciting season showcases work by female playwrights in direct response to the under-representation of female voices on stage.

Tumble Tuck is a funny, brutal and heartfelt one-woman show that seeks to examine the self-worth of young women today and emphasis we place on winning when sometimes just taking part is the real achievement. A bronze medal to one person is someone else’s gold; a C grade is someone else’s A. Tumble Tuck questions the system that tells us that if we’ve not got the best result we’ve failed.

With original music by Harry Blake and direction by Tom Wright, the show tells the story of Daisy - a young woman struggling to accept herself and realise her strength. Her relationship with water is complex: it’s the only place she feels safe so why must she be judged for how well she performs in it?
