“Now. We can do this the hard way or we can do this the abject, excruciating, horrifying way.”

Tabitha makes a lot of money and likes weak men. She keeps Eve safe in one room, completely under her control. Eve thinks that Tabitha is the best sister she could ever have.  She gives Eve books, plays with her, and hoses her down when she’s dirty. Sometimes she even takes her for walks. But do either of them know what the other is truly capable of?

Taking control is easy. Knowing what to do with it, that’s the hard part.

This exciting and original play is by Joseph Wilde, a bold new voice emerging from The Royal Court and Chichester Festival Theatre Young Writer’s Programs. Cuddles is a horrific and darkly comic cautionary tale of control. Part acerbic satire, part psychological horror, and part domestic tragedy of almost Greek proportions.
