We heal people. That's what we do here. We are a kinship.

Gill has returned home to the north coast of Northern Ireland determined to speak to her younger sister Kelly for the first time in three years. There she is shocked to discover that Kelly has become a devout member of a rapidly expanding Christian community called Harvest. As Gill struggles to reconcile this Kelly with the Kelly she has been keeping safe in her mind, a noise is gathering at their periphery that refuses to go unheard any longer.

Akedah won the Bruntwood Prize Original New Voice Award in 2019. It premiered at Hampstead Theatre, London, in February 2023.
