About Shopping & F***ing

It’s summer. I’m in a supermarket. It’s hot and I’m sweaty. Damp. And I’m watching this couple shopping. I’m watching you. And you’re both smiling. You see me and you know sort of straight away that I’m going to have you.’

Twenty years since its explosive premiere, Olivier Award-winning director Sean Holmes brings Mark Ravenhill’s provocative first play, Shopping and F***ing back to the stage.

With a raw mixture of black humour and bleak philosophy, the play follows three disconnected young adults whose lives have been reduced to a series of transactions in an emotionally shrink wrapped world. A place where Shopping is sexy and F***ing is a job.

‘An omen of the new century’ (Evening Standard), Ravenhill’s play is a prophetic vision of our twenty-first century world. Widely regarded as one of the most influential pieces of contemporary British theatre this rarely staged play is a must see.
