Vivian is on the verge of a career defining achievement when a shattering sexual allegation about her famous father, Peter, now suffering with Alzheimer’s disease, threatens to be revealed. Her social media conscious younger sister Margo, is desperate for the truth but, as family secrets slowly begin to reveal themselves, Vivian finds herself caught between loyalty to her family and the new world of #metoo; a world she should be a part of. 

As the pressure grows around the family, the threads that bind them begin to tear and pushes the sisters to confront the question – is protecting family, more important than the truth?

THREAD is a female driven play about loyalty, mental health, social media in the age of the #MeToo movement, family ties and the collateral damage of abuse and allegations.

THREAD is produced by The XV Theatre Company. Formed in 2015 The XV have been producing classic texts and original writings. THREAD is their second collaboration with Freya Alderson, previously producing her dark comedy BABY MINE at the Etcetera Theatre as part of the Camden Fringe. After a successful rehearsed reading at The Playground Theatre, West London The XV is delighted to bring this new play 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.
