A muscular piece of poetry
The searing and sensual romance of Elizabeth and Tom. Dark secrets, deep passions, and heart-breaking truths bubble over as lovers savour precious moments together.
Set in twentieth-century Canterbury, the text has striking parallels to the present.
As stunningly physical as it is poetic, Skin Tight is a theatre experience that will leave you with goosebumps.
One of Aotearoa’s most poignant and lasting works of theatre, Skin Tight premiered at BATS Theatre in 1994. It won a coveted Fringe First Award at the 1998 Edinburgh Fringe Festival and has been produced in the UK, Australia, South Africa, Europe, Canada, and the USA.
★★★★★ ‘Gary Henderson’s inventive script is sometimes shocking, sometimes heartbreaking and sometimes very funny, but also emotionally gripping.’ — London Theatre Guide
