"A gasoline gut with a Vaseline mind!"

Sugar Coat is a feminist pop-punk live music show that tells a true story of love, loss, and lubrication, it’s all about rebellious empowerment and laugh-out-loud teen angst.

Performed by an all-female and non-binary band, the play takes you on a journey of a woman's coming-of-age, exploring the ups and downs of her sexual experiences over eight years, with a touch of 90s nostalgia and a fierce feminist message.

Winner of the prestigious OFFComm 2020 Award, Sugar Coat is an uplifting and liberating show that celebrates puberty, sex, feminism, and reclaiming your body. Featuring original music inspired by Riot Grrrl bands like Bikini Kill, Le Tigre, Veruca Salt and Letters to Cleo.

From the team that brought you Fringe First winning Bobby & Amy, this powerful gig-theatre confronts sex and sexuality in a brutally funny and honest show about trauma and recovery.

Written by singer-songwriter Lilly Pollard (BBC Music Introducing) and playwright Joel Samuels (Fever Pitch, Divas, A Wake in Progress), and directed by Celine Lowenthal (Pecs, Soho Theatre; Sex, Sex, Men, Men, Yard Theatre).
