Presented by Lucy Dear

“She returns to the centre, leaning in close to the camera. She smiles a small smile and nods more assuredly than before. She’s made a decision. She turns and heads to the door. She opens it and goes to leave.

All In Your Head  is a one-woman show based on real women’s accounts of coercive control and domestic abuse. Following the success of its online premiere on Valentine’s day – All In Your Head, written by Safaa Benson-Effiom has been developed for a stage preview as part of Calm Down Dear. 

With calls to domestic abuse helplines doubling since lockdown, this important performance responds to the shadow pandemic, shares stories unspoken and shines a light on the unseen. 

The recommended viewing age is 14+ 


This performance contains accounts of domestic abuse, domestic violence, sexual assault and rape. To read the detailed synopsis with the content to consider, please click here.
