It was a very hot day – dazzling sunshine!

– and Mum – she was wiping sweat from her neck.

No, not wiping.




Mum was a beauty.

Not like me.

And don't tell me I am because you'll be lying and I won't thank you for it.

Not today.

Not when this whole thing – us, here - is about me telling the truth.

The latest from Philip Ridley is a beautiful, breathtaking new drama about one girl's craving for family and home, and the lengths she will go to achieve them.

Dark Vanilla Jungle embarked on a national tour of Great Britain in spring 2014.

This edition also features a selection of previously unpublished monologues by Philip Ridley alongside the play.
