Billy The Girl

29 October 2013 – 24 November 2013

Billy is out waiting for love where she last saw it. Her mum is certain love has walked into her life again. Her sister thinks love could still be found somewhere in the house… but Billy herself isn’t even allowed through the door…

In Katie Hims’ sweet, stark family elegy, love never dies but sometimes, like Billy, it has to sleep in the caravan with Frank’s ashes and a bear costume.

Clean Break returns to Soho Theatre following This Wide Night (2008/9), Charged (2010) and Re-Charged (2011) with this sharp yet gentle look at a fractured family dealing with a lifetime of mistrust.
