A refreshingly raw and topical play from Afsaneh Gray
You’re an octopus. All mixed up, like me. One leg something, and one leg something else… Three women have been called in for interview. Sara looks kind of Asian. Scheherazade looks kind of Middle Eastern. And Sarah is kind of white. But how British are they? Staged against the backdrop of Brexit and the refugee crisis, Octopus is set in a dystopian world of bureaucratic box ticking. It explores what it’s like to be treated as a foreigner in your own land…and the power of punk. ★★★★ – The Stage ★★★★ – Broadway Baby Children under 16 must be accompanied by a responsible adult.
"Inspired and very funny."
