We are warriors. We are survivors. If you need our help, let us know.
Four women come together to perform a ritual of community and catharsis. Gathering up true stories of deaf women’s experiences of surviving abuse, they form a witches’ coven like no other—with a cauldron of newts' eyes and butterflies, deep scars and blazing signs.
A world première from multi-award-winners Deafinitely Theatre (4.48 Psychosis, Contractions), combining British Sign Language and English in the company’s bilingual style. Drawing on interviews with women exploring domestic abuse in the deaf community, this is a new work from nationally-acclaimed director Paula Garfield marking the company’s 20th anniversary.
