★★★★ “A rocking coming-of-age story” – Guardian

A feminist pop-punk live music play about love, loss and lubrication. Based on a true story.

Sugar Coat is a hilarious and heartfelt mix of rebellious empowerment and laugh-out-loud teen angst.

Winner of the OFFComm 2020 Award, Show of the Week (VAULT Festival 2020) and UNTAPPED (New Diorama Theatre & Underbelly) finalist, Sugar Coat is an uplifting and liberating show about puberty, sex, feminism, and reclaiming your body.

Featuring original music inspired by Riot Grrl bands, such as Bikini Kill, Le Tigre, Veruca Salt and Letters to Cleo
