Tumble Tuck is a fast-paced, one woman show, with original music by Harry Blake, that examines self-worth in young women today.It explores what it means to be successful in a world where medals matter. Daisy’s relationship with water is complex; it’s the only place where she feels safe so why must she be judged for how well she performs in it?
This funny, brutal and heartfelt piece seeks to examine the pressure we put on young people, when sometimes just taking part is truly an achievement. A bronze medal to one person, is someone else’s gold; a C grade is someone else’s A. Tumble Tuck questions the system that tells us that if we’ve not got the best result we’ve failed.
Tumble Tuck is a fast-paced, one woman show, with original music by Harry Blake, that examines self-worth in young women today. Milton was prompted to write Tumble Tuck after noticing the rise in television shows with panels. Judging panels on TV are successful due to the immediate drama that arises when someone doesn’t achieve; there are shows where contestants are judged on baking, ice skating, singing and even one’s ability to barbecue. Viewers at home can vote and judge too and judgement has become omnipresent in today’s society.
