He's dead, and it's her job to prepare and present his body for his family's final goodbye.
She often imagines what each person's life was like. But today she doesn't have to imagine who he is.
She knows him.
Faced with the body of the man who raped her eleven months ago, When We Died is a striking new play about one woman's choice to confront her trauma and tell her story, on her terms.
An early version of the play was longlisted for the Bruntwood Prize for Playwriting in 2017.
Extracts have been presented as work-in-progress for PILOT Nights and China Plate's First Bite Festival (both at Midlands Arts Centre, 2019).
When We Died premieres at VAULT Festival after further development supported by Pleasance Theatre's LABS residency, the University of Northampton and the Travers Foundation.
Note: this show contains an account of rape, and descriptions of dead bodies. At no point is rape presented onstage.
