Goblin. Troll. Pathetic. These are some of the ways Jess describes herself. This 50-minute solo tragicomedy follows Jess over the course of three months as she makes ill-advised and embarrassing attempts to “love” herself. It’s rip-your-heart-out-sad and wet-yourself-funny, and for anyone who’s ever looked in the mirror and wanted to vom.

Written and performed by Caterina Incisa and directed by Anna Marshall, 0 Days Without Crying aims to find the humour in self-loathing without offering a solution. Developed in Montreal, Canada at the Playwrights’ Workshop Young Creators Unit, 0 Days Without Crying enjoyed a sell-out run at the 2017 Montreal Fringe, where it received excellent reviews and was nominated for The Freestanding Room Award for Making Big Things Happen in Small Places. In 2018 it transferred to the Landor_Space in London, where it had a successful run and received numerous four star reviews. We’re delighted that this “laugh-out-loud comedy that manages to broach important and difficult discussions about mental health in a truly unique way” (A Younger Theatre) is now transferring to the Hope Theatre

Elise and Sirenna have written a play! They have nabbed a great space! They have secured financial backing! They have written a marketing blurb!

They are still not taken seriously.

A play about two women writing a play about two women writing a play about two women writing a play.

“The fire of fear is the only flame that burns bright.”

CALL ME FURY is about The Salem Witch Trials. Sort of. A feral scream of rage, this play is a commentary about sexual politics and feminism today – set to live folk music.
