Description

Jane and Toni are immaculate, iconic, accommodating flight attendants. They're here for your safety, your comfort and your pleasure. Or so you think. But 30,000 feet below them their seemingly perfect lives are rapidly unravelling.

In the sky, over the sea and in cheap hotel rooms around the world, they can feel the ground shake beneath them. Something is rising up, something which cannot be ignored. And it's calling out for them. If they're going to survive what's coming, something needs to change.

Poetic, unpredictable and explosive, Stef Smith's play Enough is a fragmentary and intense journey into female friendship, and unearths what happens when you can no longer be the woman people want.

Enough premiered at the Traverse Theatre, Edinburgh, as part of the 2019 Edinburgh Festival Fringe, winning a Fringe First Award.

Reviews

"A terrific and terrifying stage poem. .. there's huge lightness, humour and energy in Smith's writing. "

- Scotsman

"Smith writes brilliantly about the anxiety that simmers behind the eyes, the sense of impending doom, the lurch in the stomach as the world seems to tip on its axis and go into free fall. Few write better than Smith about the internal world of women. "

- Edinburgh Festivals Magazine

"Shimmers with rage, desire and tenderness. .. Stef Smith has created a pearl here: shining and incandescent, but with grit underneath it. .. savage, funny and heartbreaking. "

- The List

"Profoundly poetic. .. the language is gorgeous. .. a powerhouse of emotion. "

- The Skinny

"Beautifully poetic. .. a thrilling piece of theatre. "

- Broadway World

"A dramatic symphony of words that mixes dialogue, interior monologue, sharp one-liners and psycho-sexual surreal imagery. "
