Grotty is a dark and savage play exploring the London lesbian scene.

A couple of little sad old basements that drip with sweat and piss, with second-hand noise pulsating from some gay-boy night upstairs. The women sit there in their uniformed black… and they are looking at you. They are not nice girls. But Grotty is not a nice story.

Izzy Tennyson's play was premiered by Damsel Productions at The Bunker, London, in May 2018.

Grotty is also available in the volume Grotty & Brute: Two Plays.

Press Quotes

'A grimly funny, painfully honest look at the underbelly of lesbian life in the capital... the writing has a terse beauty and brutal humour that shocks, amuses and ultimately proves unexpectedly affecting... for all the laughter and the final optimistic note, the lasting impression left by gritty Grotty is of a haunting portrait of lonely, damaged people uncertain how to reach out. It's very impressive'


'Izzy Tennyson's play is a grimy, intriguing look at Dalston's lesbian party scene... wildly funny'
