Podcast: We Get Naughty with Andrew and Sami

Andrew Houghton and Sami Sumaria from Pink Milk Theatre on their show Naughty

This week’s guests on our Runn Radio show were writer/ performer Andrew Houghton and director, Sami Sumaria from Pink Milk Theatre.

The pair joins us to chat about their show, Naughty, which is coming to The Hen and Chickens Theatre soon (27 Sept to 2 Oct), before heading to Salford (6 Oct), Hull (7 Oct) and Cardiff (8 & 9 Oct).

The play, a darkly comic, queer coming-of-age tale, had a successful run at 2021’s Camden Fringe, and is now back after some rewrites and further development.

We discuss its themes, why its important that people can see themselves represented on stage, and how much the show has changed since its Camden Fringe run last year.

Naughty, The Hen and Chickens Theatre. 27 September – 2 October

Days after Andrew ends his seven-year relationship with college sweetheart, Jake, he is messagedout of the blue by a former ‘friend’. This unwelcome advance triggers an emotional spiral as Andrewrecounts his unstable first steps into the world of gay sex and queer identity; all under the increasinglyimposing guidance of Kevin, a teacher at his drama academy. 

This darkly comic, queer coming-of-age tale is presented by Pink Milk Theatre following anOffFest-nominated run at Camden Fringe 2021. 

Naughty is a semi-autobiographical piece written to examine grooming in the LGBTQ+ community and the common lack of safe mentorship for queer youth. The one-person production uses multi-roling, voiceover and projections of text conversations to document the decline of a young relationship and the rise of an unhealthy dependency between student and teacher.

Tickets for the London run can be found here.

The show then plays at the following locations:

Salford – The Kings Arms. 6 October. Tickets here.
Hull – Wrecking Ball. 7 October. Tickets here.
Cardiff – The Other Room at Porters. 8 & 9 October. Tickets here.
