WINK by Jen Silverman
Directed by Anthony Skuse
With Eloise Snape, Matthew Cheetham, Graeme McRae
and Sam O’Sullivan as Wink the Cat
[A beat. Wink studies us. Wink smiles. It is terrifying.]
Sofie and Gregor are drifting apart.
Their cat, Wink, is missing, and the only thing they share is their psychiatrist.
Then Wink turns up on the psychiatrist’s couch...
One relationship falls apart - while another blossoms - as violent desires, domestic terrorism, and relentless feline vengeance drip from this ominous comedy about the thin line between civilisation and savagery from the acclaimed writer of The Moors and Collective Rage

“I’m fascinated by human relationships, and I’m always trying to find new lenses to see us through, new ways of understanding our complexities. We are strange and mercurial; we live under shifting weather - systems of love and regret and jealousy and hope. Wink is a dark comedy with absurdist tendencies, but it seeks to cut to the heart of something authentic and true in how we long for and lose each other, how we recover and rebuild.”
- Jen Silverman, Playwright
