Metal Rabbit Productions


by Jenna Fincken

The effect of being told you’re loved is very powerful. But what happens when that love becomes an invisible threat?

Lou is a 28-year-old primary school teacher who’s wholly aware the audience are watching her. She wants to show them exact moments in her relationship, breaking down the progression of coercion as Lou journeys from freedom to being trapped.

Following award-winning runs at Edinburgh Fringe and Southwark Playhouse, this compelling one-woman thriller continues its exploration of the suppression and destruction that coercive control causes.

Age guidance: 16+



“Important play which takes us inside the head, and life, of a trapped woman.”

The Guardian

“A precise, pressure-cooker production of a thrilling and thoughtful one-woman play.”
