New post-show Q&A: Join Terri for the world premiere of The Secondary Victim

In London theatre, Native, News, Plays by Terri PaddockLeave a Comment

On Tuesday 21 November, Mates co-founder Terri Paddock will talk to the writer-director and cast of The Secondary Victim, which receives its world premiere at London’s Park Theatre, where it has a strictly limited season from 14 November to 9 December 2017. Got any questions?

Ali is a respected psychotherapist and loyal wife. Then suddenly a complaint of sexual misconduct by a male former client throws her professional and personal life into a maelstrom of suspicion and distrust.

Who is lying? Is anyone telling the whole truth? Against a background of contemporary blame culture, Ali finds herself struggling to maintain her reputation and her marriage, and as the threats keep rising, her instincts are tested to the extreme.

Playwright and director Matthew Campling‘s previous stage credits include The English Heart and Abominations, which was nominated for Best New Play in Broadway World’s 2016 UK Awards.

Campling is also a former psychotherapist. The Secondary Victim is inspired by personal experiences.

As someone who was falsely accused of sexual harassment at work myself, and who fought – and won – a two-year legal battle to clear my name, I feel a very personal connection to the material too. I’m really looking forward to discussing the issues with Matthew and The Secondary Victim company after the evening performance on Tuesday 21 November 2017.
