work.Theatre presented VELVET at the 2018 Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Written and performed by Tom Ratcliffe and directed by Andrew Twyman (Kanye the First, Hightide). VELVET premiered in the Pleasance That at the Pleasance Courtyard.

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?
