“It’s not like riding a bike. Sex. It’s far more complicated.”

Phil and Alice are in love. Phil and Alice are healing wounds. Phil and Alice are desperate to communicate.

Candid, uninhibited and visceral, this new play from the award-winning Jack Thorne is an intimate, tender portrait of loss, hurt and recovery.

The Solid Life of Sugar Water received unanimous acclaim from critics and audiences alike at the 2015 Edinburgh Festival Fringe, with The Times calling it “startlingly good”.

Jack Thorne’s previous credits include Let the Right One In and Hope for the stage, as well as television dramas Glue, Skins, Shameless and This is England. His new play Harry Potter And The Cursed Child will open in the West End in 2016.

All performances include audio description and creative captioning.
