Wallis Hamilton Felton – ‘Dirty Laundry’
The first of our ‘scratch pieces’ is the debut work of from Wallis Hamilton Felton and is entitled: ‘Dirty Laundry’.
“But what if it’s wrong, Father? What if it’s all…wrong?” One woman. One confession box. A lifetime of untold truths. Follow No Name as she recounts her harrowing experiences whilst in the 'care' of a Magdalene Laundry. After having her youth cut short, she is forced to endure immeasurable physical and emotional hardship in order to survive. But as she faces one impossible choice after another, she carves a path for herself that no one, least of all herself, expected. Audience members should be advised that Dirty Laundry contains themes that may be upsetting to some viewers, including sexual assault and violence.
‘Dirty Laundry’ will be performed on Friday 13th September at 1pm.
