The Milford Asset Management Season of
The Writer by Ella Hickson
Presented in collaboration with Q Theatre

"Does it scare you that the future might speak a language that you can’t understand?"

A young writer encounters an older director on an empty stage. She’s furious about his latest play: it’s lazy, sexist, profane. He likes her rage. He flirts with her, condescends her, even offers her a job. But she wants more than he could ever offer. Forget his small stage and his even smaller imagination. She wants awe. She wants blood. She wants to change the shape of the world.

Following its incendiary London premiere in 2018, Ella Hickson’s The Writer takes a wrecking ball to theatre as we know it. Walls collapse and worlds splinter unpredictably, exposing the structures that shape what we see. Beautifully yearning and uncompromisingly savage, this is theatre with a new set of teeth.

The Writer contains adult content and themes including sexual content.
