Description

In a society where private lives become political and freedom of expression is not an option, Irene finds herself imprisoned. As tales of her incarceration spread overseas and her growing exposure becomes a threat, she is forced to make a brutal decision. Penelope Skinner’s (Linda, The Village Bike) new play is a haunting vision of ruthless state control, tense friendships and one woman’s determination not to be broken. Presented by the exhilarating Headlong (People, Places & Things, This House) and directed by Amy Hodge, Meek is a tale which reflects on our own fraught times.
