Bakehouse Theatre


Written & Directed By: Melita Rowston

An amoral revenge tale for the #MeToo generation, 'Cockroach' is a blackly comic prose-poem/grunge-cabaret about female anger.

When C wakes from a nightmare she finds herself transformed into a monstrous vermin. For too long she's yearned to behave badly. Tonight's her night of reckoning!

Disrupting Kafka and Ovid's Metamorphoses 'Cockroach' explores the silencing following abuse and the transformations that occur from it. Featuring a live score on drums, keys and Fender Strat it's an anthem for our times: furious, funny and hopeful.
