Old Trunk: Fran & Leni

Old Trunk: Fran & Leni

17th May 2017


1976. Fran & Leni meet in a North London comp. Three years later they are The Rips. Girls with guitars, bored of playing nice.

“I was the punk. I was born punk. But she was my rock. The only one I ever
had.”

Music, sex, fishnets, tits and spitting: a two-girl escape from everything sugar and spice.

Old Trunk provoked laughter and tears at Latitude and Edinburgh with this full-throttle tale of escape and lifelong friendship.

By award-winning writer Sadie Hasler. Directed by Sarah Mayhew.

Featuring the voices of Phill Jupitus, Lizzie Roper, Alan Cox, Ricky Champ & Marc Mollica.
Original music for ‘The Rips’ by Fi & Dave Dulake of Tuppenny Bunters. Lyrics by Sadie Hasler.
