“Some guys listen to music, some guys like to sing. I like to work people out.”
"RAINER is a tribute to London in all its grime and glory."
- The Indiependent
Rainer is a solitary bicycle delivery rider, whizzing across London, delivering food to whoever will summon her. From luxury flats to leafy suburbs, she loves to create stories in her head, re-imagining the city as one of her favourite sci-fi films or Scorsese’s Taxi Driver. She loves her life, until her one-time lover disappears, and reality starts to slip.
"As entertaining as it is eye opening. Impossible to ignore."
- The Spy in the Stalls
After receiving standing ovations and glowing reviews last year, RAINER returns to the Arcola Theatre’s Outside Space this June for a limited three-week run. The play was a finalist for Samuel French’s Off-Broadway Award, longlisted for Theatre Uncut’s Political Playwriting Award and winner of the Prix Royal competition in Paris. A one-woman show, RAINER is a celebration of a city and the people within it, seen and unseen.
"Sorcha Kennedy plays twenty characters with equal flair and razor-sharp comic timing."
- The Okayish
