Our plays for adults delve into the darker elements of Herstory. We explore unknown tales that are based on fact or folklore. Our aim is to shine a light on women's voices unheard past and present. To give a fresh and open perspective on what it is to be female, cast in a time confined by expectations of gender, class, race, status and social behaviour.
We are currently creating a trilogy of scripted plays that explore women, mental health, crime and media exploitation. Beginning with Ordinary, based on the true story of Helen Duncan a popular medium in the 1940's, eventually imprisoned in Holloway prison for her beliefs and practice. Ordinary was performed at The Old Operating Theatre and The Ninth Life in Autumn 2021. All performances were sold out with fantastic feedback and reviews. “Brilliant and bonkers!” The Old Operating Theatre 2021.
We look forward to more collaborations with The Old Operating Theatre in the future and hope to release further details soon.
