A coming of age story about sexual consent and love in all its forms. Created as a hybrid production blending theatre and film.
Spanning one term at university, Modern Love explores the dynamic between two best friends, Ella and Olivia, whose relationship negotiates the lines between friendship, sexual intimacy and obsessive desire. By contrast, best mates Harry and Jonah enjoy a relaxed and secure friendship whose boundaries are severely tested when they both fall for Ella. What follows is a romantic game of musical chairs that explores mental illness, sexual consent and love in all its forms.
Performed as part of the Litmus Fest at the Pleasance Theatre and the Etcetera Theatre. Written and directed by Emily Warren.
Awkwardness clashes with absurdity in the precarious soap bubble generation that is the under 25s of London. Bullying, banter and bitching will test social class, greed and unrequited love to the bitter end.
Co-produced with SLAM Theatre, and performed at the Tristan Bates Theatre as part of the Camden Fringe. Written and directed by Abe Buckoke.

Christina Calgaro, London Theatre 1
"Provoking as many questions as it answers, Modern Love is a valiant attempt to unpick the nature of modern relationships amongst a group of young people."
Peter Brown, Act Drop
"But, with what seems like an army of technicians and numerous supporting artists, this hardly feels like a small-scale project at all - more like one from a company with much bigger ambitions to field."
Laura Evans, West End Wilma
"A refreshingly accurate social commentary on the current conditions that thousands of young Londoners face, ‘Rat In A Box’ is bold and unapologetic about its modern-day relevance, and sparks food for thought about the state of the future for renters in a blatantly unsympathetic housing market."
