✮✮✮✮ ‘Performed by a brilliant cast, Occupied is as challenging as it is funny.’ – The Public Reviews

‘An extraordinary new play that should not be missed.’ – Uk Theatre Network

”Anna Mors’ production walks a delicate line but walks it well, generating tension and unease while drawing excellent performances from the cast’ – The Stage

“We are making little territories in your country, a hostile take over of  your garden sheds, your abandoned houses and your toilets!  The occupation has begun! ”


Driven by a desire for belonging, two Romanian immigrants kidnap an Englishman to learn how to be English. Set in a derelict Victorian public toilet, Occupied is a darkly comic play about identity in crises.

Occupied was first performed at Labfest 2012 to critical acclaim.


Carla is a multi-award winning writer who currently holds the Nick Darke Award 2013 and previously won the 2009 Euroscript Screen Story Competition. Anna Mors Graduated in Directing from Rose Bruford and has recently won the Kevin Spacey Award for Emerging Artists.
