After showing in San Francisco, to critical acclaim, we are incredibly excited to be transferring the production here to Park Theatre from 5th August.

“Everything I did was to protect my daughter”

What do you do when your child is bullied? Talk to the school, the parents, the bullies? What do you do if there are hundreds of tormentors invading your home through your computer? What if one of the instigators is a parent?

Inspired by true events, this new work by award winning playwright Kathy Rucker follows a suburban mother who is obsessed by her daughter’s online social circle and inadvertently sets into motion a scheme with a horrifying outcome.

Crystal Springs is a gripping drama about cyber-bullying and the challenges of parenting in the digital age.

“Three boys from my history class went into this brothel and got the ‘full works’, while the others were queuing for a kebab.”

Hendrix is growing up. Or at least he’s trying to. But he’s sick of his mother and her constant preaching on the virtues of an organic lifestyle. And he’s sick of her girlfriend, a twentysomething stunner who winds him up relentlessly. But most of all he is sick of the bullies at school who target him viciously, thinking if his mum is gay then he must be too.

In a desperate attempt to prove his masculinity, Hendrix enters a very adult world and gets far more than he bargained for. He meets Luminita – a young girl enslaved into an unbearable life. She finds comfort in Hendrix; a chance to connect, to be seen as a human being. Though from completely different worlds, their secret friendship grows in snatched moments in a sordid room above a Chicken Shop.

This World Premier of Chicken Shop by Anna Jordan, 2013 winner of Bruntwood Playwriting Prize, was one of the final ten plays in the Soho Theatre’s Verity Bargate Award 2011, which had over 900 entries. Since then it has been in development with the Soho Literary team and was on the long list for the Royal Exchange Theatre’s Bruntwood Prize 2011.
