★★★★ ‘Warm, funny and full of heart’ The Stage

/wƐndihƱs/ noun: Scottish dialect for a wee toy house

Mismatched lovers Laura and Jake just want sex. Late Friday night drunken Tinder sex. Nothing more. No strings attached. But when fantasy doesn’t quite measure up to reality, both are forced to ask: what do they really want?

In ‘snarky, eye-rolling tone’ (Whatsonstage) Scottish theatre companies Birds of Paradise and Random Accomplice bring their ‘no-holds-barred, eye-wateringly funny’ (Edinburgh Guide) comedy to London.

Exploring sex, love, body image – with vibrators and baby alarms – Wendy Hoose is an ‘outrageously funny’ (Guardian) and deeply touching comedy with a twist.

All performances include audio description, BSL and animated surtitles in the comedic style of the show.

Running Time: 65 mins

★★★★ Stage

‘A gorgeous, cheeky and out spoken comedy of bad manners’
★★★★ Scotsman

★★★★ Herald

‘A well executed piece of theatre, that does not need morally good labels to define it.’
★★★★★ Theatre Bubble

‘Unashamedly vulgar, but with a compassionate core, Wendy Hoose is a bold, entertaining and sensitive production.’
★★★★ List
