Old Trunk

Fran & Leni

Fran & Leni

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

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

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

Fran & Leni provoked laughter and tears at Latitude and Edinburgh with this full-throttle tale of escape and lifelong friendship. 

“A bittersweet rampage…Profanity meets poetry…a provocative, observational piece.” ???? – The Stage

“Bittersweet story of two girls’ rebellion against the machine…Laugh out loud funny…provocative…deeply sad, Fran & Leni lives up to its feminist punk inspirations”  ???? – To Do List 

“Brings the tale of two lost punk souls alive…Fran & Leni is a darkly romantic comedy that is effortlessly delivered and full of life.” – The F Word

Written by Award-winning writer Sadie Hasler
Directed by Sarah Mayhew
With original music by Fi & Dave Dulake of The Tuppenny Bunters
and lyrics by Sadie Hasler
