For All the Women Who Thought They Were Mad

Written by Zawe Ashton and directed by Hackney Showroom Associate Director Jo McInnes, For All The Women Who Thought They Were Mad tells the story of a career woman, Joy and her descent into psychological freefall. As the play takes us on a surreal journey through Joy’s slippage, we question whether her distorted reality is simply reality seen through the prism of racial bias – one where psychosis is no more surreal than a black woman’s day to day experience of white, male hegemony.



For All the Women… is in development for production in 2018/19.
