At the heart of the piece is the character of the Writer, a woman who sets out to create groundbreaking stage work free from patriarchal influence. Her struggles with the power dynamics of personal relationships also come under scrutiny.

In this new production for the Théâtre des Capucins, the play is directed by Claire Thill, a Luxembourgish performer and theatre maker who trained in London, Paris and New York, and who participated in the Théâtres de la Ville de Luxembourg’s first TalentLAB in Protected content in the first Capucins Libre residency in Protected content Blackout, produced by Luxembourg's interdisciplinary theatre collective Independent Little Lies.
