Production Description:

Tracy, a Tesco’s employee, is after world domination in the form of a promotion. Her work colleagues, Tom and Gina, aid her in her life-long quest for perfection on the supermarket shop floor. It’s hard.

In our second year at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama, we were asked to write and stage our very own production. I wanted to create a monster: a woman who was not pretty, who was honest to the point of cruelty, exceedingly cringe-worthy, shameless ... an absolute legend in her own right. I also wanted her to worship Tesco. And so was born Tracy.

Certain relationships thrive on sex and arguments. When the sex expires …what’s left?

Upcoming Glaswegian writer Rehanna MacDonald created Relationshit whilst studying at RWCMD, where it received critical acclaim. This piece is an honest and challenging view of sexual politics. We follow one Glaswegian girl’s contrasting relationships with a middle class boy from the English countryside and a streetwise South London girl. She struggles to come to terms with falling out of love and discovering her own sexuality.

Featuring three second year actors from the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama. Dialogue is sharp and uncensored.
