seven methods of killing kylie jenner
“How exactly does one kill a social media figure/entrepreneur, or as I like to term her: a con artist-cum-provocateur?”
Holed up in her bedroom, Cleo’s aired twenty-two Whatsapps from Kara and has cut off contact with the rest of the world. It doesn’t mean she’s been silent though – she’s got a lot to say. On the internet, actions don’t always speak louder than words…
“Look it’s two tweets that helped me vent my frustrations. It’s really not that deep…”
Jasmine Lee-Jones’ debut play directed by Milli Bhatia explored cultural appropriation, queerness, friendship between womxn and the ownership of black bodies both online and in real life.
Jasmine Lee-Jones received the Alfred Fagon Award and the Evening Standard Theatre Award for Most Promising Playwright, and has been nominated in the 2020 Olivier Awards for the play.
Jasmine was originally developed as a writer through the Royal Court’s Young Court programme and seven methods of killing kylie jenner was first commissioned as part of The Andrea Project – A day of free events inspired by the life, work and legacy of Andrea Dunbar. This work was part of the Young Court’s mission to expand the Royal Court’s commitment to new voices.
Milli Bhatia was previously Trainee Director at the Royal Court and is now a Literary Associate. She directed Dismantle This Room and has assisted on Inside Bitch (& Clean Break), Poet in da Corner, One For Sorrow, Instructions for Correct Assembly and Girls & Boys.
seven methods of killing kylie jenner was part of the Royal Court’s Jerwood New Playwrights programme, supported by Jerwood Arts.
