Under My Thumb
On from 21 Sep 2016 till 02 Oct 2016
Greenwich Theatre
by Cassiah Joski-Jethi

Tickets: £10

About: Under My Thumb

In a dystopian present, five women are imprisoned for crimes against society. Brought together by a common enemy and facing indefinite incarceration, the one dignity remaining to them is their continuing belief in their own innocence.

The arrival of yet another prisoner seems no surprise, just another woman brought down by the world outside, but is she all that she seems?

Cassiah Joski-Jethi's UNDER MY THUMB was shortlisted for the inaugural RED Women's Theatre Awards at Greenwich Theatre in 2016, and has been selected as the opening production for our new studio space. The production sees the return of CultureClash Theatre to Greenwich, last seen with the award-winning Hannah And Hanna in 2015.

The company plan to progress to a full tour of UNDER MY THUMB in 2017 – so the performers will be meeting audiences and gathering feedback after the show. This is your chance to influence the further development of a script which has already been shortlisted for a national playwriting award.

Cast includes: Alice De-Warrenne, Cassandra Hercules, Charlotte Green, Jessica Aquilina, Serin Ibrahim, Sian Eleanor Green

UNDER MY THUMB is supported by Arts Council England and Female Arts.


The press on CultureClash Theatre's Hannah And Hanna:

5 stars – "60 minutes of pure action and suspense... Five stars to Greenwich for a brave choice and five stars to Culture Clash." Female Arts

4 stars – "genuinely very funny... the performers, Cassandra Hercules (Hannah) and Serin Ibrahim (Hanna), are engaging, fresh... Hannah and Hanna reminds us of the importance of our shared humanity and the need for basic decency" Broadway Baby

4 stars – "very moving, often funny... so very important" British Theatre Guide

4 stars – "wonderful... I get the feeling this isn’t all Culture Clash can do ̶ they’re one to keep an eye on for next year" Three Weeks

"versatile, emotionally vivid talent" Fest

"If CultureClash continue to engage with work as intelligently as they do here, there's a lot to look forward to" The List
