Slick premiered at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2008. It featured in that year's Scotland Live! showcase and was revived for the Cork Midsummer Festival 2009. It was revived again for a 2013 UK tour including Theatre Clwyd's Celtic Festival.


Press Quotes

"a show whose whole creative team deserve a standing ovation" 

Joyce McMillan, The Scotsman 

"the technical virtuosity in Slick is breathtaking"

Irish Examiner

"Slick depended on split-second timing and perfectly-placed lighting to sustain its unique and unforgettable theatrical world, which combined the pathos of Oliver Twist with the savage satire of Viz magazine in a dark, wicked and explosively funny show" 

Critics Award for Theatre in Scotland citation
