NSFW by Lucy Kirkwood is the first play to be performed in The Studio at The Quarry Theatre at St Luke’s. First staged at The Royal Court Theatre in 2012 this production is directed by the Director of Theatre, Jules Crossley, with pupils from Bedford School and Bedford Girls’ School.  

NSFW refers to online material which the viewer may not want to be seen accessing in a public or formal setting, i.e. ‘Not Safe For Work’. Set in a typical ‘lads’ magazine, Doghouse, and a women’s fashion magazine, Electra, this clever comedy raises some important issues about the media such as; privacy, the responsibility of the press, how women are portrayed in men’s and women’s magazines and conditions for young graduates trying to get into the fiercely competitive world of journalism.

“A cracking piece… dramatically gripping… a richly absorbing and inventive play!
– The Telegraph

Performed by pupils of Bedford School and Bedford Girls’ School
