Springboard: Babydoll

A queer love story exploring sex, trust and intimacy

“Don’t put sex on a pedestal, love. You forget: most of it is really f*cking boring.”

Zeena is thrown when her Boss starts bringing escorts home.

When one of them asks for her number, things get even more complicated.

Babydoll is a whirlwind of warmth, fun and ferocity. A piece of new writing which asks the question: what exactly does a normal relationship look like? And more to the point: who cares? This queer love story explores our obsession with knowing what’s best. But are we really supporting the people we love? Or are we supporting who we wish they were?

Babydoll is based on the writer’s experiences of sex work and the corporate world, as well as anecdotes from within and outside of the creative team. Through a series of soft, strange and heartfelt encounters, Babydoll looks to illuminate the unfuckwithable power of women showing up for each other, without judgment and without shame. 

Supported with public funding by Arts Council England.
