HAMPSTEAD DOWNSTAIRS / CELIA ATKIN PRESENT

AKEDAH

By MICHAEL JOHN O'NEILL
Directed by LUCY MORRISON

There’s nobody on a megaphone. We just wait and they come. And we talk to them. And we find out what’s hurting them. And we just talk and we pray and that’s pretty much it.

Details

Gill has come to a remote part of the coast of Northern Ireland - a place that was once her home but has since become the base of a slowly expanding mega-church called Harvest. She’s on a mission to persuade her younger sister Kelly to leave her new found family in the church… But she also wants to confront their mother, whose abandonment and betrayal of her daughters set them on their divergent paths…

Akedah is Michael John O’Neill’s first full-length play, and won the Bruntwood Prize Original New Voice Award in 2019.

Lucy Morrison returns to Hampstead after The Animal Kingdom. An Associate Director at the Royal Court, her credits include This Is Not Who I Am, Scenes with girls and The Woods (Royal Court) and Little on the Inside (Almeida).
