  • Overview
    Her Naked Skin is a 2008 play by Rebecca Lenkiewicz. It is notable as the first play by a female writer to be produced on the main stage (the Olivier Theatre) at the Royal National Theatre, where it premiered on 24 July 2008. The premiere was directed by Howard Davies. In an interview, the National's director Nicholas Hytner stated "[Rebecca's] new play ... will take its place in the Olivier rep alongside work by Shaw, Middleton and Tony Harrison. But what is astonishing is that this will be, as far as anyone can recall, the first play ever by a woman writer to be seen on the National's biggest stage."[1]
