Model Behaviour

by Issy Knowles

Directed by Rachael Head

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 a fictitious 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.

Written and performed by former model Issy Knowles, and produced and directed by Rachael Head, this all-female production is a strong, funny and unapologetic one woman show which spares no punches. With recent year’s revelations and horrifying scandals sparking the incredible #MeToo campaign, there has never been a better time to lift the lid on one of the most secretive industries in the world.

“Extremely funny and the dialogue sparkles” David Walliams
