CROOKED

Sold out

Fourteen-year-old Laney arrives in Oxford, Mississippi, an outsider with a twisted back and only her writing to keep her company. When she befriends the hapless born-again Maribel, Laney''s penchant for story-telling soon spirals out of control. A hilarious chain of events is set in motion, sparking a spiritual and sexual journey that infuriates her mother and threatens to tear their fragile world apart.

A gloriously sideways glance at evangelical and Sapphic love way down south, CROOKED premiered at the Bush Theatre, London, 3 May 2006.
