Rory is 25 years old now, and he’s f**ked up. A swirling fusion of sharp and expressive new writing and elements of physical theatre, SQUIRM deals with the fine lines in a relationship through a dynamic one-man performance.

SQUIRM makes the audience a witness to the intimate struggle of justification. The audience follows Rory as he recounts his past relationships, with each attempting to justify the other.

Appetite Theatre, founded by Serafina Cusack in partnership with Jess Bernberg, are a contemporary theatre company who play on their strengths of new-writing and elements of physical theatre to deal with uncomfortable subjects, portraying them beautifully.

Loved all of it. The writing, acting, direction, the set, all made for a great piece of theatre. A difficult subject tackled well. Although there was only one actor, you could see the other characters and great use of the space, kept my attention throughout. Visited The Bread & Roses Theatre on 2016-05-22

This was one of the more superb pieces of new writing I've come across - falling eloquently between poetry and prose, the script had only a handful of weak points and many an armful of beautiful ones. Delicate and thought-provoking metaphors tumbled over searingly honest confessions in a whirlwind of textual colour that far surpassed much modern theatre writing. Clichés were either re-imagined or excellently subverted in an engaging and fresh manner, the text never becoming stale or dry. The casting was good - the character of Rory was deep and considered, and utterly believable. Staging was simple and effective, though perhaps a touch too much neck-craning was required to observe the some sequences. An excellent show which thoroughly deserves its 5 stars. Bravo!

This was one of my favourite theatre productions i've seen in a long time. The actor that played Rory was extremely talented and gave a convincing performance. I wasn't expecting to be so immersed in the story, so much so that you feel the actors every emotion. For just £10 I have to say it was well worth the money. Brilliant performance and writing.
