Originally commissioned as part of The Power Plays produced by Theatre Uncut in 2018, A Coin in Someone Else’s Pocket is a wonderfully thoughtful meditation on what it means to be a female Muslim writer.
On a stark blank stage sit four chairs. Each one of them filled by a character – some uncertain, shying away from the audience, others leaning in, eager to tell their story. All of them, more than anything, just want to feel safe.
EastEnders’ Riley Carter Millington will star in Safe, which will run at the London Theatre Workshop from the 17th to the 22nd October 2016. Alexis Gregory’s verbatim theatre piece, directed by Robert Chevara will be the first production to take place in the London Theatre Workshop’s new home in Leadenhall Market.
