We are delighted to be able to offer BLOODY ELLE - a Royal Exchange World Premiere - as a streamed event for those who cannot make it in person. This uplifting, one-woman-show about falling in love for the very first time is written and performed by the brilliant Lauryn Redding

Eve’s eyes are green like guacamole, she has posh-hair and a freckle on her chin (that might be chocolate) and when she puts her hand on Elle’s arm…

This heart-warming and belly-achingly funny story is stuffed full of those stomach-flipping-time-stopping moments, a touch, a glance, a kiss, that everyone will recognise.

BLOODY ELLE is set to an original score, building loops and layers of sound that make you feel like there is a ten-piece band on stage, transporting the audience to a sweaty, packed out gig in the back of a pub or a 10,000 seat arena.
