Hutch

Wed 18 & Thu 19 Sep • 7:30pm • Full £10 Concs £8 • Community Theatre

By John Reynolds
Presented by Baz Jellicoe

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 coping with cold, hunger, noise, lack of privacy and rogue landlords.

The lives of Svenya, working as a sex chatline operator, and Bob, a part-time librarian, are turned upside down when a young woman, Debbie, rents the vacant hutch between them.

Audience Feedback:

“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.”
