A comedy about yarn, chaos & Eurovision

A hilarious and poignant comedy about a girl obsessed with The Eurovision Song Contest. Through spoken-word, cynical stand-up, and lip-syncing to Eurovision songs, she tries to find her voice on stage. However, as the show progresses, her façade starts to unravel and she becomes overwhelmed by her inability to organize her own thoughts.

A celebration of Eurovision and a vulnerable dissection of self-expression.

Created during March 2022 by emerging theatre-maker and performer Ruby Shrimpton, Unstitching was born out of her love for Eurovision, lyrical writing and existentialism. It has since been to Camden Fringe 2022 and Six Plays One Day. In March 2023, it was commissioned by Culture Liverpool to be part of the city wide Eurovision Festival. It will be playing at Edinburgh Fringe in August 2023.
