It’s the future. But only slightly.
There are blackouts. No one knows what’s causing them, but that doesn’t stop people going missing in them.
Now Steph and Bell, a schoolgirl and barmaid, have to search for their missing friend, until the outside world starts infecting the theatre that stands around them…
Originally supported and developed by Leeds Playhouse before transferring to the New Diorama Theatre for a sell-out run, Holy What's A Girl in School Uniform (Walks into a Bar) is a bold new play about crisis, darkness, cities and hope.
A Girl in School Uniform (Walks into a Bar) comes from the team behind 2020 smash hit Antigone.
