Theatre // Coming up // Manic
25 May


When Raina arrives at her spoken word gig to see her exes in the audience, all the questions she's had about her past sexual experiences begin to surface. Through poetry, comedy, and one very awkward encounter with a cheese string, she begins to explore questions about bad sex, drunk sex, and the grey areas of consent. 

Sometimes hilarious, sometimes heart-breaking, MANIC is a solo show that combines spoken word, puppetry, and theatre to ask whether it is possible to say you were violated without implicating a partner.  

'A powerful yet harrowing experience, MANIC is an important addition to the conversation of sexual inequality.' (NSDF Noises Off)

'A challenging and multifaceted show with a figure of raw talent at its heart.'  (**** Confessions of a Five Foot Two Actress)

‘Astonishing moments of word play, startling metaphor and poetic story telling drip and drop throughout’ (**** Bath Fringe Hub)

Contains discussions of sexual assault, and strong language. 

Written and performed by Raina Greifer

Directed by Pippa Thornton

Winner of Best Solo Show at FUSE International 2022
