About: Damsel Develops: Damsel Red

Damsel Develops is a new festival committed to helping emerging female directors develop work, with the hope of moving towards a future production. In September, Damsel Productions called out for project pitches from female directors across the UK. The pieces could be old, new, devised or adapted – all was welcome as long as it was written or conceived by women and committed to representing the female experience on stage.

Hannah Hauer-King directs a rehearsed reading of new play, Lilith: Confessions of a Demon Goddess, by Holly Augustine. Lilith is a piece that traverses genres, infusing the theatrical with the cabaret and burlesque, all through the perspective of Adam's vilified first wife. Though almost 6,000 years old, this Lilith shares our contemporary angst and an insatiable taste for the illicit, expressed with a healthy dose of both comedy and pathos. Written and performed by Holly Augustine (Bitch Boxer, Alginate, I Need To Vent) and musical direction from Ben Simon, expect an hour of underscore, horns, and mythological mess.

Hannah is artistic director of Damsel Productions. She recently finished participating in the National Theatre Director's Course, after working with Oxford School Of Drama and directing within the Bechdel Testing Life festival. Recent directing credits include Alginate (Bunker Theatre), Fury (Soho Theatre), Hypernormal (Vaults Festival), Brute (Soho Theatre) and Dry Land (Jermyn Street Theatre),

Lucy Atkinson directs a staged reading of new play Oil and Matter, by Camilla Whitehill. Camilla's previous work includes the award winning shows Where Do Little Birds Go? and Mr Incredible. After working on four short plays together, 1001, Aloe Aloe, Haemophobia, and Shy Tory, Camilla and Lucy are collaborating on a full length piece for the first time.

Roberta hasn't been home in 12 years. Now she's back. Just in time for bonfire night.
Oil & Matter is a play about trying to cross burnt bridges, and whether you can ever really go home again.

Lucy Jane Atkinson trained at LAMDA. Her upcoming work includes two new plays for VAULT festival 2018, and a West End transfer of Testament, by Tristan Bernays (Pick of the week, VAULT 2017). Other recent work includes The Enchantment (HERE Arts Centre, New York), the US premiere of the 1888 play written by Victoria Benedictsson, the real woman who inspired the characters Hedda Gabler and Miss Julie.
