Sometimes you crack.
Sometimes you didn't mean to yell that.
Sometimes you have to lay low until you've figured it out
And sometimes, sometimes you have to hibernate until you've healed.
This is a new day.
Shedding a Skin is a story for our times. It's a play about finding kindness in unexpected places; about understanding what our elders can teach us; it's new skin honouring old. It's a play about joy, healing and protest.
Amanda Wilkin's Shedding a Skin is the 2020 winner of Soho Theatre's acclaimed Verity Bargate Award. The play premiered at Soho Theatre, London, in June 2021.
