‘There’s no ideal answer but you have to make a choice.’

Returning with their trademark interactive style, Baobab Tree dives into the challenges of a custody battle. Katie’s been catapulted from childhood to the uncomfortable stage of not-quite-adulthood all whilst her parents are separating. But how will young Katie’s fate be decided?

Jack of Hearts, formally titled King Jack Queen, is a fully immersive play that explores consent in an honest and respectful way. The performance is a fun and confronting experience which presents a realistic portrayal of sexual consent with the aim to open up conversation and give audience members a better understanding of similar situations.

 

The play has been performed at SASS (London), the Greater Manchester Fringe, the Adelaide Fringe and Flinders University. We are now working with connections across the globe to continue the conversation around consent, rape and respect; especially amongst young people. Over the past year, since the debut performance of Jack of Hearts, we have worked and listened to many individuals who relate to the story, ensuring that it is educational and candid.

 

We are now touring Jack of Hearts to educational settings alongside a discussion workshop focussing on sexual consent and respect. If you are interested or would like to know more, please contact us at baobabtreetheatrecompany@gmail.com .
