Sugar blends five stories of first love into a candy-coloured confection. Five women concoct their miniature tales of bittersweet romance using baking ingredients and cookies. These intimate object theatre pieces staged on breadboards balanced on the knees of two spectators take place in a 1950s frosted kitchen designed by the multitalented Keith Murray.

Sugar was The Only Animal’s contribution to Hive 3. 12 theatre companies + 1 warehouse space = event/experience/celebration X 12 (that’s big!). With DJs, drinks, dancing at the central cabaret, roving performances, and the 12 surrounding cells filled with creative mayhem and intimate experiences.
