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.

'I defy anyone to walk out untouched'
‘I was not prepared to be kidnapped by a play and a voice so completely.’
‘…beautifully written, contemporary, poetic and delicate. The world she creates in the play is familiar and surprising all at once. She’s definitely a talent to watch.’
'...It’s heartfelt, it’s mysterious, it says a lot about the world, it’s really, really brilliant.’
'A celebration of life itself...utterly brilliant.'
'Amanda Wilkin is a sensation.'
