Coming Soon: The Acid Test

November 28, 2012

Event: “The Acid Test” by Buds Theatre Company
Venue: Drama Centre Black Box
Run: 6th – 9th Dec 2012

Buds Theatre Company presents a new work by acclaimed British writer Anya Reiss in the form of “The Acid Test”.

Anya Reiss is celebrated as the youngest playwright ever to have had a play staged in the West End.

Her debut piece “Spur of the Moment” was heralded as “the most accomplished debut from a young playwright I’ve ever had the pleasure to see” by Dominic Cavendish of The Daily Telegraph.

The play went on to win the 2010 TMA Award for Best New Play and Reiss herself won the Evening Standard and Critics’ Circle Award for Most Promising Playwright.

“The Acid Test” is her second piece, written under the mentorship of The Royal Court’s Young Writers Programme and staged at The Royal Court on 13th May 2011.

The play is about three young women living away from home and dealing with the complexities of independence when the father of one character, Jess, turns up unannounced at their doorstep, having been evicted from his family home by Jess’s mother, who is now having an affair with the builder.

Jim, the father, begins to behave as recklessly as his daughter and her friends, leading us to question: Does age really equal maturity?

“The Acid Test” is directed and produced by Claire Devine, and stars Kristy Griffin, Rebecca Lee and Gloria Tan.
