About the play

It’s the future. But only slightly. There are blackouts. And when blackouts happen, women disappear. Now Steph and Bell, a schoolgirl and barmaid, must find a way to come together to search for their missing friends.

Set in an alternate reality uncomfortably close to our own, A Girl in School Uniform (Walks Into A Bar) is a thriller about two women coping with fear in the dark. This searing and spellbinding play written by one of the UK’s most exciting young playwrights, Lulu Raczka, is a ferocious indictment on violence and a rallying call to anyone who regularly fears it.


“A resounding shot in the dark.” ★★★★ The Guardian

16, pretending to be 19. Schoolgirl.
Quaint, determined, naïve and quietly brave. Private school privileged. The kind of girl who would be all over the news if she went missing.

* No accent required, audition with your natural accent.


In her 20s. Works at the bar. 

She’s dry as hell and has been through hell. 

Hostile, dogmatic, protective, cynical and wary. 

* No accent required, audition with your natural accent.
