Damsel Productions today announces the world première of Tabitha Mortiboy’s The Amber Trap. Hannah Hauer-King directs the production which opens on 29 April at Theatre503, with previews from 24 April and runs until 18 May.
“Some bones are like ice. They’re weaker than you’d think.”
Katie and her girlfriend Hope work at their local corner shop, where the days pass in quiet, comfortable rhythms. For Katie, the little shop is a sanctuary. A place where she can hold onto Hope without anybody watching. But when new employee Michael arrives, the sands start to shift and the air begins to thicken.
Producing their fifth UK première, all-female theatre company Damsel Productions presents The Amber Trap, an unsettling portrait of devotion and control.
Playwright Tabitha Mortiboy said, “I’ve been collaborating with Damsel since the conception of this play – it’s inspired by a fascination with gender politics, and a drive to put authentic stories about queer women on stage, which is at the heart of Damsel’s company ethos. I’m thrilled to be able to share this story with characters so close to my heart, and hope that it will become a part of the critical conversation about the dynamics of power in sex and relationships.”
