Lady Muck & Knot Theatre, two female-led theatre companies dedicated to social justice, new writing and unleashing burgeoning talent present The Amygdala.
Inspired by true events, The Amygdala has been written with the aim of raising awareness and encouraging support for victims of domestic violence.
A roughly almond shaped mass of grey matter inside each cerebral hemisphere, involved with the experience of memory and emotions, especially empathy, anger or fear.
Kelsey is in prison serving a life sentence for murder.
Thea is doing a PhD and thinks she knows everything there is to know about women who kill.
But, as her friendship with Kelsey deepens, Thea realises she doesn't know the first thing about fear or what it can make a you do.
Based on true events The Amygdala is a brutally honest portrait of the life of a woman in prison that explores the limits of our capacity for empathy and forgiveness.
