POST SHOW Q&A: Weds 20th June. With writer Tom Fowler and Director Grace Gummer

Twenty-two-year-old Angie is living a life she never signed up to. Caring for her mum and working a job she doesn’t like.

Too long she’s been forgotten and ignored. But not today. Today she’s going to be seen.

Created as part of the Royal Court’s Open Court 2016, Grace Gummer (Trainee Director 2016-17, Royal Court) directs the World Premiere of this searing monologue from the writer of “undeniably skillful” radio play Suspicious Minds (The Stage).
