“Whatever that thing is – sitting on the sofa all day – doing whatever it is that it does. She doesn’t want to talk to it. And she knows that isn’t good.”

What if you didn’t pay rent? What if you never left the house? What if you stopped talking? What if you never stopped talking? What if you cut your arm off? What if you told me to f*ck off? What if you punched me in the face? What if I scared you?

Violence is sewn into the fabric of our everyday – it’s on our TV, our relationships, our work, our language. When violence is so ubiquitous, how do we keep talking about it? How do we keep noticing it?

This play is showing as a double bill with Hymns. Find out more about the BOVTS Summer Festival at the Wardrobe Theatre here.

As soon as I visited the School, I fell in love with the place. Perhaps it sounds a bit irrational, but sometimes you get a vibe - and you just know! BOVTS gave me all the tools I needed to prepare for a career as an actor. Sahir Mehta, MA Professional Acting, 2018
