A fresh and thrilling take on a modern love story from Olivier nominee (Standing on the Sky’s Edge) Maimuna Memon. Love, lust, and late nights collide in a musical roller coaster, taking the audience through the euphoria and distress of two people dealing with their own and each other’s mental health.

Ria is working with her band to complete a new album- songs charting the rise and fall of a recent relationship. But the more Ria progresses, the more she’s drawn back to the darkness of her troubled past, until we’re not sure where memory ends and reality begins.

From its multi award-winning run at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, including The Scotsman Fringe First, the Mental Health Fringe Award and The Stage Edinburgh Award, Manic Street Creature now transfers to Southwark Playhouse for a strictly limited run.
