Will premiere at Theatre503 28th June - 23rd July 2016
Ticking time-bombs Luce and Charlene are 30-something binge-drinking soul mates. They clock in after heavy a night out on the tiles, popping caffeine pills and downing miniatures on the factory floor, boasting about last night’s sexual conquests.
When you are living for today it's hard to think about tomorrow.
A gripping portrait of the destructive friendship between two women, pushing themselves to their limits.

STAGED & REHEARSED READINGS
KLINK KLANK ECHOES
"This exciting work by first-time writer Kathryn O’Reilly is a jarring and vividly powerful piece which establishes her as an exciting new voice in theatre". Andrew Alty
"The moment I started reading the first draft of this play I was swept up - in it's rhythm, it's swagger, it's natural flow. How can such a dramatic, shocking play be so seductive, so sexy, so beautiful..? This play has alchemy - Kathryn has a unique voice. Truly inspirational!" Rikki Beadle-Blair
"I enjoyed it immensely. I enjoyed its freshness. I liked the rhyming. I liked its pace. I liked the pace of the narrative and the relationship detail" Simon Stephens
