Summary

Sometimes you crack.
Sometimes you didn’t mean to yell that.
Sometimes you have to lay low until you’ve figured it out
And sometimes, sometimes you have to hibernate until you’ve healed.

This is a new day.

Shedding a Skin is a story for our times. It’s a play about finding kindness in unexpected places; about understanding what our elders can teach us; it’s new skin honouring old. It’s a play about joy, healing and protest.
Amanda Wilkin’s Shedding a Skin is the 2020 winner of Soho Theatre’s acclaimed Verity Bargate Award. The play premiered at Soho Theatre, London, in June 2021.

Critic Reviews

‘A wondrous weepie of a show… I defy anyone to walk out untouched.’

Guardian
Critic Reviews

Amanda Wilkin is a sensation as a woman on the brink of a breakdown.

Independent
Critic Reviews

A shrewd and zingy comedy, which takes a surprisingly tender turn.

Daily Telegraph
Critic Reviews

A rumination on kindness and healing but above all a celebration of life itself. This night belongs to Wilkin – what an utterly brilliant performance.
