Sheer Height Theatre made their début at the Etcetera Theatre with Clare McIntyre's deftly funny and deeply disquieting 'Low Level Panic', a play as alarmingly relevant today as it was in the 1980's. Set in a bathroom that acts as both refuge and prison, Low Level Panic is an honest, acutely observed and unapologetic portrayal of three ordinary twenty-something women grappling with the implications of their sex.


McIntyre's play - in which Jo, Mary and Celia's attempts to hide, ignore or dismiss their deepest insecurities and fears are paraded on the stage – gives voice to the real life, every day low level panic of women attempting to navigate a society in which body image obsession, sexual objectification and gender-based violence are increasingly normalised.

Low Level Panic enjoyed a sell-out run of performances at the Etcetera Theatre in November 2014.
