Above the Stag Theatre in present multi-award winning VELVET in association with work.Theatre this October. Written and performed by Tom Ratcliffe and directed by Andrew Twyman (Kanye the First, Hightide), VELVET returns to London fresh from it's award winning summer 2019 UK & Ireland Tour.

Tom has always dreamt of being a successful actor, and now after years of disappointment he is finally presented with his golden opportunity... and an impossible decision to make.

Set against the backdrop of the 2017 #MeToo movement, VELVET explores the complex realities of harassment within the industry and how far a person is willing to go to achieve their dreams. However, when most creatives are riding the wave of change, will Tom's opportunity slip through his fingers?


VELVET initially premiered at the Pleasance Courtyard in 2018 before running at VAULT 2019 and embarking on a UK and Ireland Tour later in the year.
