NOF*CKSGIVEN Comes to Vault Festival
An outrageously funny and heartbreaking example of not giving a fuck. Well, sort of. This is Stacy's anti-slut-shaming tale. One weekend. With drugs. Go harder or go home(less).
Daisy King's debut play calls time on society's desire to label women. Written during a very exciting and powerful time to be a female writer, King's semi-autobiographical piece asks why we are all so desperate to be liked.
"I was shagging this bloke for a bit who'd shout Ramadan when he came. Which was odd because he was Jewish and my name isn't Dan."
Daisy King writes from a history of juxtaposed oppositions. After graduating from Royal Central School of Speech and Drama and a successful career in theatre at Shakespeare's Globe, where she worked for 12 years, life then dealt her first-hand experience of hidden homelessness, mental health illnesses, social change and a long journey to recovery.
Through the support of charities, she was introduced to Clean Break Theatre Company who work with women by offering them emotional, pastoral and creative support. King developed her work and identity as a playwright and personally, gaining the confidence to embark on a career in script writing. The success of King's work has escalated quickly, with a full scale production at the King's Head Theatre and work being published by Bloomsbury.
