Never for Ever

A revenge tale about an actress in her 40s under investigation for the murder of an auteur theatre director.
Psychodrama at Never for Ever
Show details


From her initial police interview, through the world of her flat, shop work, auditions, to landing - against all odds - the role of Marion Crane in the director's stage adaptation of Hitchcock's iconic film, 'Psycho', 'Psychodrama' is filled with smart takes on what it means to be middle-aged and female in an industry captivated by stardust and beauty.

A profound, all-consuming emotional journey, confronting obsession, loss and self worth, it is enhanced by a glorious soundscape by Gareth Fry (The Encounter, Harry Potter and The Cursed Child, Olivier, Tony, Drama Desk, Evening Standard multiple award winner) that includes references to Bernard Herrmann's stunning original 'Psycho' score alongside other eclectic musical influences from rock 'n' roll to Disney animation.
