About the Show Less...

A play about a young girl on the brink of adolescence. Read More >

Spur Of The Moment looks at the distance between close family relations and a young girl on the brink of adolescence.

Pre-teen Delilah enjoys High School Musical, swim parties and ogling the lodger. Whilst her parents throw verbal grenades at one another, they barely notice their 21-year-old tenant starting to notice their daughter.

Spur Of The Moment is the debut play by Royal Court young writer Anya Reiss, written when she was just 17.

Director Jeremy Herrin has a track record of working with young writers, having directed the hugely successful debut play of Polly Stenham, That Face, which transferred to the West End.

Spur Of The Moment is recommended for theatregoers aged 14 and older.
