From £10.00

From the makers of the award winning show, Dugsi Dayz, Side eYe returns with Desperate Times - a double sell-out hit by emerging new writer Amal Abdi.

Meet Lucy, a bored and lonely supply teacher, who has developed a compulsion for petty thieving. She feels invincible and lives for the drama, until she tells a lie that not even she can charm her way out of. How long can she keep up the act?
