Important information:

This performance contains distressing themes and strong language.

If a tree falls in a forest, and no one gives a flying f**k, does it really fall at all?…

Inspired by Ovid’s myth, ‘Daphne and Apollo’, this ecofeminist drama recasts Daphne as an impassioned environmentalist, battling big business, a boastful boyfriend and a pressurising father. As tensions between Daphne and Apollo rise, Daphne must decide what she is willing to sacrifice for the sake of saving the planet.

From the acclaimed BoxedIn Theatre company and Scottish playwright/director Isla Cowan comes an exciting new play about trees, family trees and female liberation.
