Following on from its successful run at the Edinburgh Festival last year, Sarah Milton’s play will now play at the King’s Head Theatre from the 24th April until the 12th May to headline the theatre’s upcoming Who Runs the World? season.

Daisy’s swimming the relay, but her legs still jiggle and her front crawl is a bit fking feminine…Tumble Tuck is a funny, brutal and honest piece that seeks to examine what it means to be successful in a world where medals matter. This fast paced, one woman show follows the story of Daisy, a young woman struggling to understand how to define herself as successful.

Directed by Tom Wright and featuring original music by Harry Blake, Tumble Tuck is performed by Sarah Milton.

Talking about the play writer Sarah Milton said: “The pressure on young people, and particularly women, to look a certain way, achieve life goals and fit in with social expectations is enormous. Tumble Tuck explores the journey of a young woman going through exactly these pressures and is inspired by my own experiences of managing my mental health through swimming. Tumble Tuck is a play I wish I’d seen as a young adult and I’m ecstatic that the show has been chosen to transfer to The King’s Head Theatre, to headline its all-female festival.”

Tumble Tuck was first presented by the Old Vic New Voices at Wilderness Festival in August 2016 and then at Soho Theatre in October 2016, as part of their Soho Rising Season. It then had a run at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2017.

Tumble Tuck will play at the King’s Head Theatre from the 24th April until the 12th May. For more information visit:
