The Disappearance of Sadie JonesThe Disappearance of Sadie Jones

Foyle Studio, mac birmingham, 8pm

Sadie Jones wants to disappear. She walks a tightrope between reality and imagination; a chaos of words and silence. Sadie leads her lover and her sister into the strange landscape of her unconscious, a place filled with games and memories. This contemporary dream play is a unique blend of language, image and physicality.
‘This brave and powerful play confirms Hannah Silva as a truly original voice’.
