her house is gone
her home is destroyed
her world has changed
…I am her
A girl comes home to find her house has disappeared: the neighbours have fled and the streets are deserted.
her was a compelling story of a fifteen year old London girl who inexplicably finds that conflict had made her an alien in her own country.
Drawing on the experiences of ordinary people confronted with displacement as a result of war, this at times shocking play featured one actor playing different versions of the ‘girl’. She navigated the harsh realities faced by young women in conflict zones and the difficult choices they had to make to survive.
Using innovative green screen technology to integrate animation, film and live action, her combined the emotional depth of theatre with the visual intensity of the graphic novel to create a dark and twisted world of politics, war and survival.
her was supported by Cockayne – Grants for the Arts and The London Community Foundation.
her toured nationally. Phoebe Price played ‘girl’ in the R&D phase of the play.
You can access the script of this play via the British Library’s MPS Modern Playscripts Collection.
