Otto is a normal teenager with normal parents. They have the usual parent aspirations for him – Mum thinks Cambridge University, Dad thinks Arsenal Football Club. Life is the usual teenage combat zone.

Until one day when Otto wakes up feeling pretty weird. He discovers, to his surprise, that he has been inexplicably transformed into a skunk.

Inspired by Kafka’s novella The MetamorphosisZawe Ashton’s Skunk takes a surreal, dreamlike and hilarious look at the pressures and transformations that happen as teenagers grow up.

All performances will have captioning. 

Thursday & Friday will have a BSL integrated performance by Julie Doyle
