Low Level Panic

When am I going to wake up and be different?

Three flatmates. A single bathroom. And a whole world of men.

Mary’s found some porn in their bin, and needs to talk about it. But Jo’s in the bath, fantasizing about being someone else. And Celia just wants to look her best for the party tonight.

In this funny, timely and unapologetic play, three twenty-something women figure out how they really feel about sex, their bodies and each other.

With a vibrancy and stylistic freedom, Low Level Panic interrogates the effects of society’s objectification of women.

‘McIntyre has a deadly accurate ear, a subtle sense of humour and a deep fund of compassion: she writes with thrilling understanding’ The Sunday Times

The first major revival since its Royal Court Theatre premiere nearly thirty years ago. Clare McIntyre’s (1952-2009) Low Level Panic won the Samuel Beckett award, while her next play My Heart’s a Suitcase earned her the Evening Standard’s Most Promising Playwright Award.

Chelsea Walker, runner-up, JMK Award 2016, directs. She has previously directed new work at the Bush, Finborough, Southwark, Theatre503 and Tristan Bates.
