Playwright(s): Cordelia Lynn

directed by:

featuring:
Jenna Harris
Graham Cuthbertson

First produced in 2015 at the Royal Court Theatre in London, Lela & Co. is a timely and gut-wrenching play about women’s worth in a capitalist world. Based on a true story, Lela & Co. gives space for a woman to be able to tell her story of being brought into sex trafficking by her husband during a time of war. Lela & Co. dives headfirst into this story while also exploring “truth” in storytelling, who gets to tell whose story, and the resiliency of the human spirit.

A devastating critique of patriarchal violence.

- London Guardian ****4 stars

It is as if you are present for a one-time-only reckoning. A flawless piece of work.
