Two sisters. One diagnosis. Seven different bathrooms.

When Marnie is diagnosed with a rare medical condition, she and younger sister Jen grapple to come to terms with its life-changing impacts.

Flushed is a play about the everlasting bond developed between the cubicle walls.

Theatre Unlocked are proud to present Flushed - a multi award-winning (53Two 'FOUNDation' Award, 2018, & Voice Magazine 'Pick of the Fringe' Award, 2018), five-star play, set entirely in various different bathrooms. It’s a unique and important story, with a lot of humour and a lot of heart.

Catherine Cranfield is a writer and director, who wrote Flushed after graduating from the University of Manchester in 2017. Since then, Flushed has toured venues such as the Barbican Centre, as part of Fertility Fest 2019, and Underbelly, for the 2018 Edinburgh Fringe. In 2019, Catherine completed an MA in Theatre Directing from Mountview Academy of Theatre Arts.

Theatre Unlocked was founded by Elis Shotton and Catherine Cranfield in Manchester in 2017. Since then, the two have been working to create and promote exciting and essential new writing. Theatre Unlocked's other work includes Zucchini by Elis Shotton, which premiered at Manchester's 53Two Theatre.
