Scoot over to the Roundhouse Theatre to catch the comedy Rapture, Blister, Burn. This production takes a sharp look at 21st century gender politics.

Decades later, unfulfilled in opposite ways, each woman covets the other’s life, and a dangerous game begins as each tries to claim the other’s territory.
