A shocking, wickedly funny, exposé of the modelling industry; quick quips, dodgy dates and the misuse and abuse of power.

Fresh off a sold out run at the Edinburgh Fringe, Model Behaviour is a cut-throat, cathartic unveiling of a brutal and idolised industry. Told entirely through the eyes of one hopeful young model, we are taken through the casting process, the pressure of fashion week, and the heart-breaking narrative of one women desperately unsure as to whether she can ever be anything more.

This all female production is directed and produced by Rachael Head, and written and performed by former model Issy Knowles, we believe there has never been a better time to lift the lid on one of the most secretive industries in the world.

"An excellent, entertaining, and unsettling tale of exploitation"
4 stars
Molly Stock-Duerdoth
"Exploring timely issues, like the power play of male professionals in a female-dominated industry, this is a funny and hard-hitting monologue, which comes to an empowering conclusion"
