Dark Thriller sheds light on abuse

News provided by Certain Curtain Theatre on Tuesday 6th Feb 2024

A ground-breaking play that lifts the lid on domestic abuse is set to take the stage across Lancashire this March.

Produced by Preston's Certain Curtain Theatre Company, a professional Company, renowned for tackling sensitive and controversial subjects. 'LADY IN RED' tells the story of 'Rose' - a woman struggling to break the chains of 'love.'

"Yes, It's a hard-hitting subject." says co-writer John Woudberg "But it's also a compelling drama in its own right. It has tension, humour and a gritty yet beautiful language. People are saying 'LADY IN RED' is an experience they will never forget. Theatre should tackle the darker side of life - it's not all 'Cats' and teacups - it's raw and beautiful - it's real and its relevant"

Lady In Red - combines superb dialogue, a compelling plot, inspired performance and evocative colours to create an unforgettable experience - a journey through one woman's attempts to leave an abusive relationship.

"Domestic abuse is something we all need to understand if we want to create real change. If you have three female friends – statistically one of them will experience domestic abuse” – says actor Claire Moore, “Our play helps the audience answer the 'Why doesn't she just leave?' question and gives them a chance to find out what really goes on behind closed doors. I believe theatre can challenge AND entertain its audiences – it gives us a chance to experience other people's lives – LADY IN RED is no different."
