The Solid Life of Sugar Water

By Jack Thorne

Paperback £8.99£7.19

EPUB £8.99£7.19

Phil and Alice are in love – familiar, flawed, ordinary love. They are on a journey, but this journey doesn’t have an A to Z.

Jack Thorne's The Solid Life of Sugar Water is an intimate, tender play about loss, hurt and rediscovery. It previewed at The Drum, Theatre Royal Plymouth, and premiered at the 2015 Edinburgh Festival Fringe, in a co-production between Graeae Theatre Company and Theatre Royal Plymouth.

‘It had been a while. I was really nervous. I mean, it’s not really like riding a bike. Sex. It’s far more complicated.’

Press Quotes

'Heartbreaking'

Time Out

'Forceful, thrilling, stunning… Thorne's script is fearless and finds shattering detail'

Telegraph

'Startlingly good... an adult play in the very best sense... gutsy, challenging, witty, deceptively delicate'

The Times

'Hits you squarely in the gut - it has a real sense of precision and meter, the tone sometimes funny, sometimes filthy, sometimes hopeful, sometimes utterly devastating... an intense, powerful, brilliantly written two-hander about sex, relationships and loss'

The Stage

'Funny, poignant, arresting… a complex emotional watch, heartwarming and heartwrenching, sometimes simultaneously, but super smart too; great on gender gaps, better on life's unexpected turns and loaded up with minuscule wisdoms'
