WINK opens at Theatre503
March 2015

 

Phoebe Eclair-Powell's play WINK premiers in its full length form at Theatre503 this spring. 

 

John is a 27 year old teacher ‘who probably wasn’t allowed to teach at an all girls’ school’ and Mark is his 16 year old ‘Olympic porn watching’ pupil. A normal week in their normal lives – school, eat, TV, sleep, repeat. Except in an age of twisted technology and possible profiles, the life Mark really wants is only a click away… but what happens when that life already belongs to John? By Friday shit really is going to hit the fan. Fuelled by an electrifying mix of music and movement, WINK looks at two lives veering dangerously close to collision, asking us, what separates the man from the boy.
