‘We are warriors. We are survivors. If you need our help, let us know.’

Four people come together to perform a ritual of community and catharsis. Gathering up true stories of deaf women and non-binary people’s experiences of surviving abuse, they form a witches’ coven like no other – with a cauldron of newt’s eyes and butterflies, deep scars, and blazing signs.

A visually-rich, playful and pulsatingly urgent world première from multi-award-winners Deafinitely Theatre (4.48 Psychosis, Contractions), combining British Sign Language and English in the company’s unique bilingual style. Drawing on interviews with women and non-binary people exploring domestic abuse in the deaf community, this is a defiant and empowering new work written and directed by nationally acclaimed director Paula Garfield marking the company’s 20th anniversary.

A Deafinitely Theatre production, commissioned by New Diorama Theatre.
