PRAMKICKER

 

The most important play of the last decadeDeborah Frances-White on The Guilty Feminist

Jude has always known she doesn’t want kids. Her sister Susie isn’t sure.

One day, in a café full of ‘yummy mummies’, Jude loses the plot and kicks a pram. Then gets arrested. Then gets sent to anger management.

Susie goes along for the ride and uses the opportunity to confess a secret…

 

International success Pramkicker is an unflinching look at what it means to be a modern woman.
Why are women who choose to stay child-free selfish, or worse, tragic?
How the fuck do you decide if you even want kids before your biological clock bashes its bell? And what about finding the right love first?
Life, you prick.
Love, you fuck.

FRAN & LENI 

 

1976. Fran & Leni meet in a North London comp.

 

For the 40th anniversary year of Punk, Old Trunk explored the freedom women found in the brash rudeness of Punk, the anarchic thrill in kicking off the traditional expectations of femininity, the joy in being what we really are. Glorious fucking mess.

Fran & Leni is a full-throttle tale of escape and lifelong friendship.

A bittersweet rampage through a friendship that weathers one of Britain's great social upheavals. Profanity meets poetry...energetic performances that balance knife-edged irony with h

Fran & Leni is published by Bloomsbury Methuen Drama.

Fran & Leni previewed at Latitude Festival 2016. It then went straight to a month’s run at Assembly Edinburgh, did a week at Vault Festival London, went on to a national tour, and then to another London run at the King’s Head Theatre. It features music written especially for the play by the Tuppenny Bunters, with lyrics by Sadie.

It was nominated for Best Drama in the Greater Manchester Fringe Awards, and Sadie was also nominated for Best Actor.

 

“A bittersweet rampage through a friendship that weathers one of Britain’s great social upheavals. Profanity meets poetry…energetic performances that balance knife-edged irony with heart-rending sensitivity while thrashing out foul-mouthed quips…a provocative, observational piece.” ★★★★ – The Stage

“Bittersweet story of two girls’ rebellion against the machine. At times laugh out loud funny, at others provocative, and at others deeply sad, Fran & Leni lives up to its feminist punk inspirations”  ★★★★ – To Do List 

“Brings the tale of two lost punk souls alive…Fran & Leni is a darkly romantic comedy that is effortlessly delivered and full of life.”The F Word

THE BASTARD CHILDREN OF REMINGTON STEELE

Opened at Camden People’s Theatre in 2012, had a sell-out run at Leicester Square Theatre, then was reprised at Underbelly Edinburgh in 2014, with its companion play The Secret Wives of Andy Williams.

 

“Guffaw out loud funny. Sadie Hasler’s The Bastard Children of Remington Steele is proof that British fringe theatre must be cherished…where all the interesting and off-the-wall ideas are.” – Jenny Eclair

“Bizarre, oddly touching comedy…like Father Ted with a darker streak.” – Three Weeks

“Truly amazing” – The New Current

“Top notch” – Al Murray

“Outstanding. This is a completely original masterpiece of a story…Hasler takes words and turns them into comedic poetry in motion leaving the audience falling about laughing with the crazy hilarity of it all. Turning language on its head, reversing everything and making poignant statements with such a quirky twist ensures the language is both sophisticated, and most importantly brand new…has restored my faith in new writing. I absolutely wait with baited breath for the next show she produces.” – Fringe Review

“One play not to be missed” – Broadway Baby
