‘We are warriors. We are survivors. If you need our help, let us know.’

 Four women come together to perform a ritual of community and catharsis. Gathering up true stories of deaf women’s experiences of surviving abuse, they form a witches’ coven like no other – with a cauldron of newt’s eyes and butterflies, deep scars and blazing signs.

A visually-rich, playful and pulsatingly urgent world premiere from multi-award-winners Deafinitely Theatre, combining British Sign Language and English in the company’s unique bilingual style. Drawing on interviews with women exploring domestic abuse in the deaf community, this is a defiant and empowering new work from nationally-acclaimed director Paula Garfield marking the company’s 20th anniversary. Commissioned by the New Diorama Theatre.
