Lela & Co

Lela & Co

“I’m trapped here. I am trapped. I want to go home. Do you understand?”


First there was the mattress. Then more bolts on the front door; the gun; the locked cupboard. Lela knew in her heart that these changes were bad. This dark two-hander is Lela’s attempt to have the truth about her life heard for the first time. Based on a true story, Lela & Co is a harrowing critique of patriarchal violence and commodification. This show contains scenes of sexual violence.


Lela & Co is proudly represented by Experience Durham.

The Events

The Events

“I don’t want to understand what happened to me, I know what happened to me. I want to understand what happened to him.”


Claire, a female priest who leads a choir in a community setting experiences something terrible – a young man she vaguely knew turns a gun on those who ‘aren’t from here’ in an attempt to make his mark on society. Inspired in part by the 2011 Norway Terror attacks, The Events is an unflinching look into understanding such horror, and if a community can repair themselves from the unthinkable.


The Events was first performed at the 2013 Edinburgh Fringe Festival and sold out to critical acclaim, winning a Fringe First award as well the coveted Guardian's 'No. 1 Best Piece of Theatre of 2013.'
