ARCH 468 AND OVALHOUSE Presents

CUDDLES
By JOSEPH WILDE
Directed by REBECCA ATKINSON-LORD
With CARLA LANGLEY and RENDAH HEYWOOD

Imagine a world without sunlight where Harry Potter, Bilbo Baggins and the cast of Dante's Inferno are real; where princes with adjectives instead of names seduce beautiful princesses; where there's just one living, breathing human being to cuddle. Welcome to Eve's world.

Eve is a 13-year-old vampire. She has never left her room and everything she knows about the world comes from her sister Tabby and her storybook characters. Eve does everything a good little vampire girl should, including drinking her human sister's blood. But one day, Tabby tires of opening her veins and, in a breath, Eve's whole world changes.

Cuddles is the stunning debut play from Capital Award-winning young playwright Joseph Wilde.
