An epic tale, based on real life stories of women who have faced and survived coercive controlling domestic abuse.
Produced by Open Clasp and Live Theatre in association with York Theatre Royal
Written by Catrina McHugh
Directed by Charlotte Bennett
A story with no ending; a change meeting with one man changes the lives of two women forever. Now they both live trying to predict the unpredictable.
Continuing a long association between Live Theatre and Open Clasp, this sharp, moving and unflinching new play is from the company behind the hugely successful Key Change which premiered at Live Theatre before winning The Carol Tambor Best of Edinburgh Award in 2015 and featuring as New York Times Critic's Pick in 2016.
Coinciding with the change in UK law in 2015 making coercive control in relationships a crime, Rattle Snake was originally commissioned by Durham University and Durham Constabulary and funded by Durham PCC and the AHRC and is used in the training of frontline police officers.
Rattle Snake will tour to York Theatre Royal from Tuesday 17 to Saturday 21 October and Soho Theatre from Monday 23 to Saturday 28 October.
