    Scottish Premiere
    Reading Rep (Reading)

    Sweets, Skinny and Baby live in their own dystopian versions of reality: addiction, violence, chemsex and self-destructive behaviour. The arrival of an ambiguous parcel has fatal consequences for the misfit trio.

    Inspired by a theatre production of Trainspotting, Queer Fish explores modern social pressures and related addictions which are beginning to shape society’s underbelly in new ways through the stories of in-depth and complicated characters.

    A gritty and genuinely youth-led production production which uses the full gamut of theatrical possibilities. 

    This performance is part of Chrysalis festival 2017 /@YTArtsScot / #ChrysalisFest / @ReadingRep
