Blush feels like powerful and important theatre on an urgently contemporary issue

The 2016 Edinburgh Stage Award winner

Revenge porn play Blush heads to the Soho Theatre for a limited engagement, prior to heading out on tour across the UK. Written shortly after April 2015 when a new law was passed outlawing the sharing of private sexual photographs or film without consent of the person depicted. First premiering at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2016, Charlotte Josephine's play, in which she also stars, won a Stage Edinburgh Award amid a flurry of positive reviews. Telling five stories featuring people who have fallen victim to the shaming trend, it asks us to examine our own relationships with media and the sense that we ourselves are simply not enough.

The two-hander will see Daniel Foxsmith starring with Josephine as they retell the five visceral and candid stories of how revenge porn affects relationships, their personal sense of self, and the fall-out of having your intimate photos out there for the world to see. Is it a simple case of not taking the photos in the first place, or a case of letting shame overcome us?
