‘You have to want to be here, wouldn’t you say. It has to be a choice you make yourself. Otherwise there’s no dedication. No heart.’
In an apartment somewhere in Dublin, May and Caitlin are on a mission to take back the looking. Up here, away from the prying, away from the eyes, they watch over the girls. They could take over the world if they wanted to… but they probably won’t.
A darkly comic, claustrophobic tale of voyeurism and sexual politics, Jodi Gray’s play Peep premiered at Bewley’s Café Theatre, Dublin, in February 2018. It was shortlisted for the 2019 Stewart Parker Trust Award.
‘Sparky and funny’
— Sunday Times
‘Genuinely creepy… manages to spook the living daylights out of you… enthusiastically and gruesomely hilarious’
— Irish Independent
‘Gray’s writing is full of promise. Her characters are believable and she has a good ear for dialogue… the dramatic situation is rich with possibilities which Gray exploits with considerable success… a welcome addition to the stock of plays by young women writers, for women actors and focusing on women’s issues and perspectives’
