‘I like having things. I like having lots of things. It reminds me that I’m… Y’know? A person.’
Alice is done with fast fashion. Ben can’t stop buying trainers. And Charlie just wants to sell out… one organ at a time.
Billie Collins’s play Peak Stuff is a fast-paced, funny, fearless deep-dive into consumer culture. In an age of retail therapy, climate crisis and click and collect – how does our ‘stuff’ define us? And have we reached peak stuff?
The play was commissioned by ThickSkin and Lawrence Batley Theatre, was a winner of the New Play Commission Scheme, and was first presented on tour of the UK in 2024.
