About the Event
‘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.’
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.
Peep is a darkly comic tale of voyeurism and obsession. In present-day Brisbane (originally written to be set in Dublin, Ireland), Caitlin and May, two young women, spy on their mutual ex-lover in his home, from an apartment window across the street, witnessing his prowess with a succession of sexual conquests. Caitlin and May are here, as they claim because he did them wrong. He has done something to them, and their plan is to systematically approach his next victims and scare them away until he ends up all alone.
The Drama Merchant is proud to be collaborating with Reverie Theatre Company on a production that is a welcome addition to the stock of plays by young women writers, for women actors and focusing on women’s issues and perspectives. And just like Venus in Fur, we are sure this show will entertain and allow you to think, ponder, and discuss at its conclusion.

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. - No More Workhorse
