Isley Lynn,

Tattoos are forever. Almost. And at Noodle Soup Tattoo there are strict rules: No names unless they're dead. Nothing on the face. Nothing you might get sued for later.

When Jodie, a rough sleeper, asks for a free tattoo from apprentice Kit, her request is well within the guidelines. But Kit is still unsure, because Kit knows only too well that getting inked isn't the only decision that stays with you for the rest of your life.

Albatross is a small but sweeping story about the past refusing to stay in the past, from Isley Lynn (SKIN A CAT – Vault Pick Of The Year Award 2016, Bush Theatre Emerging Writers Group, HighTide First Commissions Writer).


A Paines Plough and Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama production.
