We’re in a hotel.
We’re always in a hotel.
And each room is exactly the same as the last room, and the one before that, and the one before that…


Leila wants to inspire global change. John needs to get his shit together. They have an arrangement. But managing an affair isn't easy when the world around you is falling apart.

Rose Lewenstein's Cougar is a play about what—and who—we consume. It was premiered at the Orange Tree Theatre, Richmond, in February 2019, in a co-production with English Touring Theatre.
