Jodi Gray’s play Peep is a darkly comic, claustrophobic tale of voyeurism and sexual politics.

The play is set in Dublin, in the present day. Caitlin and May, two Dublin women in their twenties, are sitting at the window of Caitlin's apartment with pairs of binoculars, spying on their mutual ex-lover in his apartment across the street. Both insist that they have been wronged by him, and, as they watch, he entertains a succession of different women – whom May and Caitlin will, in turn, attempt to co-opt into their vigil.

It was first staged in Bewley’s Café Theatre, Dublin, on 19 February 2018, directed by Gavin Kostick and performed by Alexandra Conlon (as Caitlin) and Emily Fox (as May). A shorter version of the play was performed at The Miniaturists 45, Arcola Theatre, London, on 9 February 2014.
