A prodigiously talented young musician, an Ivy League school, a life changing allegation.
Out of 37,451 applicants to Eliot University, Angela stands out - but not for the right reasons. An ambiguous event in her past threatens to overshadow her talent, potential, and her future prospects. Can she overcome the prejudices of those judging her application or is she already tainted beyond redemption, regardless of whether she is victim or perpetrator?
Crackling with razor-sharp dialogue, Amy Ng’s explosive new play asks whether we can ever escape our past and investigates the destructive side of our search for acceptance. Amy’s debut play was Shangri-La at Finborough Theatre, and radio credits include Kilburn Passion (BBC Radio 3).
Anna Ledwich returns to direct following sell-out hit Labyrinth (Main Stage), No One Will Tell Me How To Start A Revolution and Olivier Award nominated Four Minutes Twelve Seconds (both Downstairs).
Please note that this production contains adult themes.
