Dark Vanilla Jungle plays at the Soho Theatre for two exclusive first-look previews before heading to Manchester’s Royal Exchange Theatre and premiering at Pleasance for the 2013 Edinburgh Festival.

A beautiful, breath-taking new drama about one girl’s craving for family and home… and the lengths she will go to achieve them. From the critically acclaimed team behind Tender Napalm.

Andrea keeps getting asked if she’s ashamed.
Ashamed of what she did to the soldier.
Of what she did to the baby.
But Andrea’s not ashamed at all.
And she wants to tell you why…

A beautiful, breath-taking, brand new work by Time Out, Evening Standard and Critics Circle Award-winner Philip Ridley, reuniting him with Evening Standard Award nominated director David Mercatali following his 2011-12 sell-out smash-hit Tender Napalm.

Suitable for ages 14+
