A captivating and intimate tale of overcoming the past and fighting for control.

Writer and performer Alexandra Donnachie and Carbon Theatre are taking their bold and captivating one-woman production When We Died on tour this Spring. This poignant production follows one woman as she is faced with the body of the man who raped her eleven months ago. When We Died is a striking play about a woman’s choice to confront her trauma and tell her story, on her terms, with the audience and the dead ready to listen.

Highlighting themes of male violence against women, When We Died returns 3 years after a covid-interrupted premiere at VAULT Festival to address the prevailing issues in a fearless depiction of female strength and resilience. This play is raw and moving and has themes which remain prominent within our public conscious today.
