Nina’s young, single and ready to mingle. In fact, she gets up to quite a lot of mingling… sometimes a few times a week. With a plethora of dating apps available at the tap of a finger, hooking-up has never been easier. But when Nina encounters a guy with a rather... engorged... ego, their casual hook-up leads her down a path of introspection and unearths desires she never knew she had.
Cut Bait is an hilarious and poignant exploration of what it means to be a twenty-something woman in contemporary society: in a world where women can 'have it all', how do you balance career, relationships, health and family... not to mention that ever-ticking body clock?!
A new one-woman play written by Pippa Thornton and performed by Maia Tassalini, Cut Bait was developed throughout 2020 & 2021, and was performed in July '21 as part of an R&D at the Rondo Theatre, Bath.
