Looking for Idea13 Thurrock?


Home  /  theatre  /  Fran & Leni @ PALACE THEATRE

1976. Fran & Leni meet in a North London comp. Three years later they are The Rips. Girls with guitars, bored of playing nice.

Music, sex, fishnets, tits and spitting. A two-girl escape from everything sugar and spice.

“I was the punk. I was born punk. But she was my rock. The only one I ever had.”

Following critically-acclaimed runs at Latitude, Edinburgh, & London’s Vault festival, Old Trunk bring this full-throttle tale of lifelong friendship to their hometown.

By award-winning writer Sadie Hasler (Russell Howard’s Good News, BBC’s Walk On The Wild Side, Rebecca Front’s Little Cracker) – “Twisted genius” GQ
Directed by Sarah Mayhew. “Inspired” Fringe Review

“Profanity meets poetry…energetic performances that balance knife-edged irony with heart-rending sensitivity…a provocative, observational piece.” ★★★★ The Stage

“Bittersweet story of two girls’ rebellion against the machine…laugh out loud funny, provocative, deeply sad” ★★★★ To Do List

“A darkly romantic comedy that is effortlessly delivered and full of life.” The F Word

Featuring the voices of Phill Jupitus, Lizzie Roper, Alan Cox, Ricky Champ & Marc Mollica.
Original music for ‘The Rips’ by Fi & Dave Dulake of Tuppenny Bunters. Lyrics by Sadie Hasler.
