The Forbidden - October 2015
"The acting was excellent, the staging and direction were perfect."
REMOTE GOAT ****
"This is a play that delights in wrong-footing its audience, and flips what seems to be a familiar thriller plot completely on its head, in a way that’s both refreshing and horrifying."
LONDON THEATRE 1 ****
Doll's Eye Theatre's mandate is to produce playsthat challenge the perceptions of gender. A very exciting mission statement and one that gives great scope for groundbreaking storytelling. Their latest play The Forbidden is anything but 'safe', and features young women who are every bit as driven and conflicted as their male counterparts.
"We were special, the four of us. Did things for each other.
That was what special friends did."
Four women meet in a café, twelve years since a fateful event which changed their lives forever.
Why are they here? And what has brought them back together? The answers to these questions could tear their worlds apart.
In this premiere, written in collaboration with Doll's Eye Theatre, Tina Jay (winner of the Kenneth Branagh Award for new writing, Windsor Fringe) explores the consequences of a dark and buried past.
When the digging begins….where will it end?
