A new live music play about love, loss and lubrication. Based on a true story, Sugar Coat is a powerful gig theatre show follows the coming-of-age story of a young woman spanning across eight years, from nineties shag bracelets to 21st century non-monogamous relationships.

From the producers of the Fringe First award winning show Bobby & Amy (Edinburgh Fringe and VAULT Festival 2019), Sugar Coat brings the story of a 16-year-old girl who has good marks and a flair for music. But when she starts Year 13, her life changes forever. From bunking classes and using fake ID to snogging boys with greasy skin - she's about to have sex for the first time. However, things don't go exactly to plan. In fact, as the years go by, she has no idea what the plan ever was and how she's supposed to navigate in this sexually confusing modern world.

And she is not the only one. Around 300,000 women in the UK suffer from Vaginismus, an estimated 1 in 4 pregnancies in end in miscarriage, and non-monogamous relationships are at an all time high. Sex is anything but easy.

Premiering at VAULT Festival, renowned director Celine Lowenthal, will lead the five strong cast of womxn actors and pop-punk musicians in an uplifting and liberating show about puberty, sex, feminism and reclaiming your body. Featuring original music inspired by an eclectic mix of bands from Le Tigre to Veruca Salt, Sugar Coat is an exhilarating 60 minute journey of loud music, sexual content and many talented bad-ass womxn.
