A blistering new one act play about sex, stagnation and escaping the un-escapable from one of British theatre's boldest new voices Luke Barnes.


Award winning LUKE BARNES, one of the UK’s hottest new writers, brings his brand new play Lobsters to the Edinburgh Fringe & Latitude Festival as part of PEEP.


Lobsters is co-produced by pilotLIGHT and Natural Shocks and has been commissioned as part of PEEP 2013 where it will be performed in front of an unseen audience who watch in their individual booths through two-way mirrors. 


Barnes’s newest work is about a long-time couple's journey as they navigate a period of love via long distance and the start of adulthood. Why do we stay in relationships when they have lost their fire? What happens when being 'in love' has burned away? And how important is sex? Starring Lucy Grattan and Richard Pepper.


Acclaimed writer Luke Barnes achieved great critical success with both his previous plays, Chapel Street and Bottleneck, which are both still on tour after sell out runs and rave reviews at Edinburgh 2012.


Movement director Polly Bennett is resident movement director at RSC and was assistant movement director at the London 2012 Olympic opening ceremony. She was the movement director on Nut, Debbie Tucker Green’s new play at the National Theatre.


Lobsters has been created with original electronic music from world-class composer and song-writer Tom Recknell.  His music can be heard on Channel 4 television, at the Cannes Film Festival, on BBC Radio and in world famous concert halls.
