Dream Pill

By Rebecca Prichard

Directed By Tessa Walker

production information

Clean Break revive their acclaimed production in the intimacy of one of our dressing rooms.

Meet Tunde and Bola, nine years old, from Nigeria. Two girls sex-trafficked to a UK city share with you their child’s-eye view of the journey they have taken, the people they have encountered and their strange ways. With a naivety, imagination and humour that have survived so far against all odds, they draw in the audience with their fantasies, superstitions and unanswerable questions.
