Dead Skin

Date: 18 Feb 2021

Andie is 17. Andrea is 17.

They work in a convenience store at the same time in their lives, disconnected by time, they find a connection through the never-ending moment of love; when the world really does fucking explode.

Written at the tender age of 17 by Laneikka Denne, Dead Skin had its first staged reading as part of the 2019 Storytellers Festival at KXT.

It’s a hybrid text of queer and hetero “love” stories challenging what it truly means to love and be loved at 17. It is also a coming-of-age story of a mother and daughter navigating the toxicity of their own relationships, in search of that “thing” we will never have with any other human, the truest form of love; an inherent, maternal connection.
