The Play About Charlotte

A successful young playwright struggles with a lack of inspiration in her life and marriage until her work suffers and mental illness blurs the boundaries of reality. A plot which twists back on itself to revisit scenes from a different perspective rejuvenates the narrative, while forceful performances push forward the emotional charge of this production.

1968. The gifted Cathy battles with a mental illness alleviated only by her close friend and muse Charlotte. An insight into a lonely and tortured psyche. Powerful and innovative new writing.
