'Welcome to the world of Dominique, a glamorous transsexual hooker in the throws of an emotional meltdown, caught between a rock and a hard face, juggling a stalker client with a crush and her cute, chavved out, drugged up boyf who hasn't got out of the bath for a week. Shocking, sexy and sometimes sweet, this is a rollercoaster ride you'll never forget.'
Alexis Gregory's Slap premiered in full production at London's legendary Theatre Royal Stratford East in October 2015. Directed by Rikki Beadle-Blair, it starred Alexis, Frankie Fitzgerald and Nigel Fairs.
Alexis Gregory is a playwright and actor. His acting credits include various TV, Film and Stage projects and his writing credits include his debut play 'Slap', performed at Theatre Royal Stratford East and Channel 4, 'Safe' performed at the Soho Theatre and 'Bright Skin Light' which has received workshop productions at Stratford East too. His work has also been performed at The Bush Theatre and the Southbank Centre.
Here's what the reviewers had to say:
‘‘Despite being Gregory's debut play, Slap, makes a unique dent into the world of theatre.’’
"There are very promising moments of Gothic, heightened language reminiscent of veteran East End playwrights Philip Ridley and Steven Berkoff and several, witty Joe-Orton-like turns of phrase and moments of comic absurdity."
