By Michael Southan, directed by Nickie Miles-Wildin. A Graeae and Belgrade Theatre co-production for Coventry City of Culture
In spring 2022 we returned to Belgrade Theatre, where Kerbs opened as part of the Coventry 2021 City of Culture celebrations before embarking on a national tour.
Lucy and David are dating. Or at least, they’re trying to.
Faced with first-date disasters, a few crossed wires and Lucy’s mum, what they really need is a bit of space, a bit of fun – and ideally some independence. Escaping for the weekend to a caravan park in Somerset, it’s time for them to find out if their spark will finally catch, or burn everything to the ground.
Written by Graeae’s own Write to Play graduate Michael Southan and directed by Nickie Miles-Wildin (Cuttin’ It, Crips without Constraints), Kerbs gets real about romance, sex and disability, while tackling the universal challenge faced by anyone experiencing a new relationship: letting someone in.
Age guidance: 14+ Contains strong language and scenes of a sexual nature.
