Originally performed at the Royal Court Theatre in the Jerwood Theatre Upstairs from Thursday 7 October 2021 – Saturday 23 October 2021
Commenting on the play playwright Lucy Kirkwood says;
“This play was for many years a private conversation with myself. The horrific murders of Sarah Everard and Sabina Nessa this year have galvanised me into making it public. I hesitate to even call it a play when it is simply a howl, a way of expressing what I feel about a culture of violence against women, but I am sharing it because I wonder if it might express a little of what other people feel about it too. It was written very quickly, and I am grateful to the Royal Court for snatching up a gauntlet thrown down last Friday night with such energy, care and seriousness.“
OPIA Collective will be putting on a script-in-hand performance of Lucy Kirkwood’s new play Maryland. Proceeds shall go to Rape Crisis England and Wales as supported by the original production from the Royal Court.
Rape Crisis England & Wales is the umbrella organisation of a network of independent Rape Crisis Centres who provide a range of specialist services for women and girls that have been raped or experienced any form of sexual violence – whether as adults or as children.
