Dream Pill was originally staged as part of Clean Break’s universally acclaimed production Charged (Soho Theatre, November 2010). Featuring plays by six of the most exciting and distinctive female voices in British theatre, Charged presented the heartbreaking truth about the lives of women in the criminal justice system. The production was so successful that in addition to Dream Pill playing at Edinburgh, three of the plays were revived as Re-Charged (Soho Theatre, March 2011), and two of the plays are presented at Latitude (July 2011).

Dream Pill

12 November 2010 – 15 August 2012

Dream Pill introduces its audience at close quarters to Tunde and Bola, two nine-year old girls sex-trafficked to a UK city. In a claustrophobic basement, they share their child’s eye view of the journey they have taken, the people they have encountered and their strange ways, and the objects they have collected. With a naivety, imagination and humour that have survived so far against all odds, they draw in the audience with their childlike fantasies, innocent superstitions and unanswerable questions.
