NIKOLINA

by Van Badham

Nikolina, a young Serbian in Britain, has fled her crumbled nation but her scars travel with her. Working in a Sheffield cafe, Nikolina becomes entangled in the lives of three British university students when the sexually immoral Francis decides to pursue her. The arrogance of youthful Britain comes face-to-face with the reality of survival as Nikolina is pursued into a past she cannot forget and the desire for love collides with the desire for revenge.

'A critical hit at the Edinburgh Festival in 2004, Nikolina is an emotional drama about the legacy of violence and the politics of sexual consent.' (Work cited for Best Playwright award for Van Badham, Fringe Report awards 2005 Finalist, Amnesty International U Win Tin Freedom of Expression Award, Edinburgh Festival, 2004)

'An aggressive and bold telling of a truly terrible story. Jigsaw-like, it assembles itself over the hour, the double plots playing out in painfully redolent parallel.' James Mullighan, The Scotsman

'Beautifully crafted - tremendously slick - deliciously controversial, this play shies away from nothing. Not for the faint-hearted, but for the huge-hearted.' Three Weeks
