Sweat. Breath. Opposition. Negotiation. Fear. How long can you hold on?
Five wildly different women gather in the muddy fields of the Highland Games circuit, ready to compete in the obscure art of Backhold Wrestling. The pearls are off, influencer videos posted, “Gucci bag” from the Barras cast aside as they attempt to join forces, wrestling with the only thing that could stop them from taking home the championship – each other. Will their differences face-plant Imogen, Chantelle, Jo, Pamela and Helen’s chances of success in the mud?
Satirical, poignant, and dynamic, Thrown gets to grips with belonging and identity in Scotland. A unique, unmissable new production.
It will be funny, it will be loud, it will be brutal.
