Shedding a Skin is a story for our times. A play about finding kindness in unexpected places. A play about connecting with what our elders can teach us – new skin honouring old skin. A play about joy, healing and protest. And having a good belly laugh.

Written by Amanda Wilkin, the 2020 winner of Soho Theatre’s acclaimed Verity Bargate Award, introduces audiences to a fresh and fierce new voice.


‘She’s captured a generation. It’s a work of incredible beauty and great wit, she will go far.’
Stephen Garrett


From a record number of 1493 entries for the 2020 Verity Bargate Award, Amanda Wilkin’s spellbinding play captivated the Award’s readers and judges, including Phoebe Waller-Bridge (Fleabag), Lolita Chakrabati (Hymn), Russell T Davies (It’s A Sin), Laura Wade (The Watsons) and Stephen Garrett (Character 7), and was announced as the winner in October 2020.


Shedding A Skin will be creating a relaxed, inclusive environment in Soho Theatre’s Main House for all performances.


Live Stream performance – Thu 15 Jul
Please note, the 7.30pm performance on Thu 15 Jul is being live streamed. Filming equipment will be present in the auditorium.
