    Winner of Best Solo Show at FUSE International 2022

    When Raina arrives at her spoken word gig to see her exes in the audience, all the questions she's had about her past sexual experiences begin to surface. Through poetry, comedy, and one very awkward encounter with a cheese string, she begins to explore questions about bad sex, drunk sex, and the grey areas of consent. 
     
    Sometimes hilarious, sometimes heart-breaking, MANIC is a solo show that combines spoken word, puppetry, and theatre to ask whether it is possible to say you were violated without implicating a partner.

    "A powerful yet harrowing experience, MANIC is an important addition to the conversation of sexual inequality."
    NSDf
    "A challenging and multifaceted show with a figure of raw talent at its heart"
    Confessions of a 5ft2 Actress
    "Many, myself included lack both the language and the patience to articulate the complex realities of sex, consent & abuse of power. Raina does not - to call her a poet is a disservice to the fully formed performer that takes the stage"
    Audience feedback

    "CPT is as a beacon of fringe goodness, a theatre that champions diversity, inclusivity and the best kind of weird uniqueness"
