On Me

16 May @ 7:30 pm - 17 May @ 9:30 pm

£5 – £15

Actors Christian and Shona are working on a true crime docudrama as a cruel abuser-turned-killer and his survivor. As filming progresses, their feelings for each other grow – along with fear, self-doubt, frustration and a creeping sense of danger.

On Me focuses on the challenges of being a role model, ally, spontaneous romantic and potential victim all at once when chasing love in the post #MeToo era. All performances start at 7:30, and, on 16th May, the hour-long play will be followed by a post-show panel discussion with charity representatives and frontline workers contributing to the fight against Gender-Based Violence.

Content warnings: Brief depictions of r*pe/abuse, scenes of alcohol use, coarse language, references to stalking and femicide and instances of sexism.

“…a thought-provoking short play. It is entertaining and often funny, but the underlying message is clearly carried throughout leaving nowhere to hide from it.” ****.5 – The Reviews Hub

“…every woman in the audience sighed the same sigh, recognising when they had been Shona, speaking to their own Christian – a stark reminder of the realness of this story.”

**** – Lost in Theatreland
