Meek - Birmingham Rep
Dates & Times
There are currently no events listed for this show.



In a society where private lives become political and freedom of expression is not an option, Irene finds herself imprisoned.

As tales of her incarceration spread overseas and her growing exposure becomes a threat, she is forced to make a brutal decision. 

Penelope Skinner's (Linda, The Village Bike) new play is a haunting vision of ruthless state control, tense friendships and one woman's determination not to be broken. Presented by the exhilarating Headlong (People, Places & Things, This House), Meek is a tale which reflects on our own fraught times.

Penelope’s Skinner’s play is very much of our times
