This is the tale of Jonah, Sophie, and a fox called Scruffilitis. It’s a love story. A dysfunctional, voyeuristic and darkly funny love story, but a love story all the same. A new play by Bruntwood Playwriting Prize winner Phil Porter, Blink is an exciting collaboration between Soho Theatre – London’s most vibrant venue for new writing, comedy and cabaret – and internationally acclaimed, Fringe First winners nabokov.
Blink stars the exciting young actors Harry McEntire (Punk Rock Royal Exchange, Manchester/Lyric Hammersmith and Winterlong Soho Theatre/Royal Exchange, Manchester) and Rosie Wyatt (Bunny UK Tour/Soho Theatre/59E59 New York Brits Off Broadway Season ’11 and Mogadishu UK Tour/Lyric Hammersmith).

‘A sad, funny and bittersweet delight… a beautifully realised collaboration.‘ ★★★★ Herald
