'History is HERstory too'
First Female Pharaoh
It is time to reclaim her power
AWAKEN is the first of a trilogy of plays.
Developed with the support of the Create Project at
The Actors Temple, Script Accelerator programme
with the Park theatre, Beacon Arts Centre and Arts Council
England. It is due to have a script reading in May 2022.
AWAKEN spans lifetimes and realities. Beginning in 1653,
it delves into the life of a maidservant who has her world
threatened by the raging persecution of witches.
Her story is told using the language of ‘Canting’,
which predates Cockney, and was spoken by the
working class of London.
Fast forward to 2023. The past refuses to remain buried
and seeps into the life of Sarah, a palliative care nurse, who is brought to the bedside of Henry Husk and catapulted towards her redemption.
AWAKEN explodes with magical realism and challenges the status quo of everyday reality. It calls into question the power that was stripped out of the hands of witches, women and the working class and offers us an opportunity to reclaim our innate wisdom.

'Awaken disorientates through familiarity, it connects the past to the present to incisively teach us about how we live now.’

THE WITCH, THE BITCH, THE WHORE WAS YOUR ANGEL
The second play in the trilogy.
Meet Lily, middle aged and out of her mind,
apparently. Or is she the only sane one left
in her soul loss civilisation?
THE WITCH unravels and exposes mass mind control,
dating back to an ancient Patriarchal civilisation
when spirit was first stripped from humanity
and AI took hold.
THE WITCH tears apart topics such as spiritual realism, mental health, sacred sexuality and personal freedom, asking us to redefine our own version of reality and break free from the false matrix.
