The ground-breaking debut from one of our most important playwrights

Shopping and Fucking is ...

Falling in love with your best friend - if you can get the right mix of Es and whizz...

Passion buried beneath layers of bubble and wrap and cellophane

A world where microwaves are the only source of heat

A place where Shopping is sexy and Fucking is a job

And if you killed someone what would it feel like?

Or maybe there are no feelings left ...

Shopping and Fucking is a witty and shocking look at a corrosive disposable world whose values have been determined by a disinherited generation

As its title suggests, this "blackly humourous play for today's twenty-somethings" is provocative, graphic and explicit

REVIEWS

"A shocker in every sense of the word" ~ Daily Mail

"It wallows in the conditions it describes" ~ Sunday Telegraph

"Ravenhill has more to say, and says it more refreshingly and wittily, than any other playwright of his generation" ~ Time Out

What makes this play so dangerous to closed minds is its unnerving knack of opening our eyes to the horrors of our daily lives" ~ Sunday Express

"Plunges you into the world of disposability, disconnection and dysfunction, where relationships to be trusted have to be reduced to transactions ... strong stuff" ~ Paul Taylor, Independent
