In the light of #metoo, post-Weinstein, post-Spacey and post all the other creeps that have been exposed Liv Warden’s debut play Anomaly (produced by Wildchild Productions) looks at what happens to those in the crossfire, the wives, the daughters and all the other women affected.
Over the past year there’s been a big focus on the #MeToo movement following allegations against powerful men in Hollywood including Harvey Weinstein and Kevin Spacey. Now WildChild Productions’ latest play Anomaly offers a fresh perspective by telling the story of the perpetrator’s family – the women who are left behind to pick up the pieces.
Anomaly is a really exciting play. For all that it’s hard to watch and challenging to process, it is immensely rewarding and a great hour of theatre all round. It’s also an amazing showcase of young, female talent doing stuff on their own terms. And I think we can all agree that’s A Good Thing.
New play Anomaly shines a light on three women affected by an abuse scandal – not those that have been abused, but the daughters of the abuser. Director Adam Small told us why he felt this was a challenging but important story to tell.
