The Questors Theatre Present
Marylandby Lucy Kirkwood
A script-in-hand performance of an unflinching new play by Lucy Kirkwood
Maryland is a bold response to the recent violence we have seen inflicted on women in this country. Written this year by Lucy Kirkwood (The Children, Chimerica), it was orginally performed at the Royal Court Theatre from 07-23 October 2021.
We are one of the many theatres across the country taking this call to arms. Our company of actors will do a script-in-hand performance of Kirkwood's brave new 30-minute play. The event is free, with donations at the end for The Women and Girls Network.
"This play was for many years a private conversation with myself. The horrific murders of Sarah Everard and Sabina Nessa this year have galvanised me into making it public. I hesitate to even call it a play when it is simply a howl, a way of expressing what I feel about the culture of violence against women, but I am sharing it because I wonder if it might express a little of what other people feel about it too. It was written very quickly, and I am grateful to the Royal Court for snatching up a gauntlet thrown down last Friday night with such energy, care and seriousness." - Playwright Lucy Kirkwood
