BAFTA-winning actress Monica Dolan has starred in W1A, Appropriate Adult, The Witness For The Prosecution and Strike: The Silkworm. She brings her first play, The B*easts, to London following a hit run at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe where it won a Stage Edinburgh Award 2017.

A searing ‘What If?’ exploration of the pornification of our culture and the sexualisation of our children.

Setting the modern obsession with putting your own child first, against our responsibility as a society towards our children as a whole, this dark tale, written by and starring Monica Dolan, explores how far one mum will go to give her child what she wants.

Dramas have a rich history in the West End; find out more about plays in London.
