Meek

Meek

by Penelope Skinner

In a society where private lives become political and freedom of expression is not an option, Irene finds herself imprisoned.

As tales of her incarceration spread overseas and her growing exposure becomes a threat, she is forced to make a brutal decision.

Penelope Skinner’s (Linda/The Village Bike) play is a haunting vision of ruthless state control, tense friendships and one woman’s determination not to be broken. Directed by Amy Hodge, Meek is a tale which reflects on our own fraught times.
