Out of Joint, in a co-production with the Royal Court Theatre, present

Shopping and F***ing

Production shot for Shopping and F**kingDespite the play’s mischievous title, Mark Ravenhill’s powerful first play was hailed as a serious and remarkable debut. A place where Shopping is sexy and where Fucking is a job, Shopping and Fucking takes a beady and witty look at a corrosive, disposable world. The production was a phenomenal success and went on to play in the West End twice, as well as undertaking several national and international tours.
