    Created with Carrie Cracknell, Blurred Lines explores contemporary gender politics.

    With an all-female cast this new play explores the reality of equality in Britain today, where feminism is a dirty word and pornography is inescapable. 

    Blurred Lines premiered at The Shed, National Theatre in January 2014.

    Reviews

    The writing is witty, the direction elegant, the performances sharply observed, the issues raised of pressing importance, and the play as a whole has great charm. Jane Shilling
    The Telegraph

    Payne's involvement is crucial: this is not about demonising men but about seeing how men and women can bring about change together... Blurred Lines represents part of an increasingly vibrant conversation about achieving genuine equality for our daughters (and sons) Lyn Gardner
    The Guardian

    Payne has a poet's ear... A thought-provoking, finely modulated 70 minutes. Paul Taylor
    The Independent

    the piece is a funny and visceral exploration of sexuality, gender (in)equality and society’s perception of women... often hilarious but always deeply uncomfortable. Daisy Bowie-Sell
