Description

World premiere and programmed for Made in Scotland 2018 – Heroine is based on the true story of Danna Davis and her 10 years in the US Army. A survivor of military sexual trauma, hers is a human story exploring healing, forgiveness and what speaking your truth really means – with grit, lyricism and necessary black humour. Performed by Mary Jane Wells, directed by Susan Worsfold. 'An impressive performance... a compelling story of resilience and survival' **** (Scotsman). 'Hilarious and chilling... fascinating and gloriously entertaining' **** (AllEdinburghTheatre.com). www.madeinscotlandshowcase.com
