Seven Methods of Killing Kylie Jenner

July 15–27, 2021
Sloane Square, London SW1W 8AS, United Kingdom

Recently graduated from the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, Jasmine Lee-Jones, 22, has written a debut play for our times. Sharp and insightful, the drama opens as Cleo (Leanne Henlon), the newly single protagonist, embarks on a Twitter tirade, questioning how Kylie Jenner, the daughter of prominent and affluent parents, can authentically claim to be “self-made.” Cleo’s tweets to Jenner spiral from innocent mockery to death threats; meanwhile, her best friend Kara (Tia Bannon) tries to soothe the situation. As with all good writing, the play is about much more than firing 280-word insults. What lingers is a well-constructed commentary on race and cultural appropriation. —B.A.
