Three vulnerable people sharing an attic divided into ‘hutches’ eke out a meek existence, but their landlord’s plans force them to choose between surrender or resistance.
Hutch is a comedy with a serious message which examines the injustices and absurdities of the current housing crisis and, in particular, ‘sex for rent’. The play conveys the everyday struggles of long-term residents, Svenya and Bob, and new arrival, Debbie, in a world where the rogue landlord is king.
“Hutch was superb: hard-hitting, but also very funny; theatrically innovative and very topical.”
“Full of pathos, comedy and compassion. Not to mention three gripping, very three-dimensional, well-drawn characters about who we came to care a lot.”
“I enjoyed every minute of the play. It was funny, moving and conveyed a powerful message.”
